The Wisdom of La Luna

The time just before, during, and just after the New Moon is a time of “seeding” as opposed to “making plans and taking action.” The period teaches us the art of honoring, containing, and holding our dreams in dark stillness. It is not yet time for creating plans and strategies. We learn to wait, vision, and dream. Like a pregnant woman, for the first week between the New and Full Moon we are gestating our intentions. Our role is be the container in which our dreams are nurtured, fed, loved, and protected. For the second week between New and Full Moon we actively shift our attention from containment and nurturing to the growth and development of what we seeded at New Moon. If we are tapping into the Moon’s waxing energy, we’re able to channel our creative energies with full power and intention. The closer we come to the Full Moon the more we see those intentions shoot above ground level and into full sunlight. The Full Moon is a time of manifestation and things finally coming above ground. This is where I believe many women will be tempted to disconnect from the Wisdom of La Luna. We are in full swing, momentum carrying us forward and things are manifesting. Our creative juices are flowing and our natural response is to want to keep creating and generating. But at the Full Moon the Wisdom of La Luna is telling us to gear down, wrap things up, and celebrate. Two potent weeks of visioning, gestation, and creating are enough. We are enough; even or especially if we think not enough things were manifested in that month’s creative cycle. The Full Moon tells us that whatever has come topside is to be celebrated in gratitude. It asks us to trust that whatever has come to fruition is perfect and more than enough. We must not keep driving our creative energies forward. This is a time in which we can joyfully experience a fuller range of our emotions, as well as the height of our physic and intuitive powers. It is a time to express ourselves more fully and revel in our heightened energy; but not so that we can do more. The Full Moon is a celebration of being in which we cease from all our doing. This is counterintuitive in our modern culture and I believe this addiction to doing more and working longer and harder, this addiction to unlimited growth and constant development, is what has our world severely off-kilter. If only more of us understood and embodied the Wisdom of La Luna. The Full Moon’s wisdom is at the core of the TreeSisters’ Map of Five Choices. We believe deeply in the need for all of us to slow down enough that we can reconnect to and celebrate one another, deepen our intimacy with the natural world, and then ground all of our actions from that sacred place of being. This is also why we offer the Full Moon Body Meditation calls each month. This Saturday we gather again for our Full Moon deepening together. This call is about drawing back our energies from all our ‘doing’, to feel what it’s like to really give our energy fully to ourselves. The call is entitled Deepening into Rest, and it will be a beautiful moment to receive yourself as we head into the Christmas surge. It is on December 6th at 9:00am PST, 12pm EST, 5pm UK.  Attend by Phone:  Guest pin code: 359662#  Primary US dial in number: (425) 440-5100  Secondary US dial in number: (347) 464-3150  Full list of LOCAL dial in Numbers: http://InstantTeleseminar.com/Local/?eventid=62525892  Attend by Web:  http://InstantTeleseminar.com/?eventid=62525892 As the Moon waxes to full over the next 24 hours, I remind myself there is wisdom in following La Luna. I can trust what I’ve done this month is enough and that who I am is more than enough. Each time I look up through the forest canopy at the radiance of the Full Moon, I know it is La Luna reminding me of my own brilliance and that now is the time to celebrate and dance in gratitude for what has been birthed. I am enough. And so are you.
