May the New Moon bring you peace.
May it bring you healing and calm.
May it help you see where you are and your way forward, granting you sight beyond your eyes, listening to and through your heart.
I was blessed with some outside wild garden and forest time today. Letting it bring me renewing energy and healing from a cold that thought it would come to visit.
Seeing this phase of my meadow area was quite amazing. Lots of aster flowers blooming on their bushy plants. As I stood among them with the breeze blowing, I could hear the buzzing melodies. On quick glance, the meadow looks quiet, only plants moving in the wind. On closer look, each plant was a flurry of activity flitting and flying from flower to flower.
All different bees and wasps feeding and gathering. Wonderful buzzing as they travel and work. The occasional butterfly floating through too. In that moment, all of life was expanding before my eyes, so much, so vibrant, so amazing. What a blessing to witness.
And then a walk through the woods. Sensing the trees whispering to me and to each other. Touching their unique bark imprints, wrapping my arms around their full trunks, honouring that I get to share time and space with beings so much older than I. With much gratitude.
If you have the opportunity to be outside today, even if it is to stand on your front steps, to feel and breathe, enjoy it.
New Moon blessings,
Can you find the stick-type walking creatures on one of the purple asters?
Life beyond what we see in a moment.
