Bright Mother. Full moon musings.
Why is change so painful? Maybe it’s because what we are willing to go through speaks to the level we are committed to sacred evolution. This full moon is about rebirth. In vedic astrology it’s the nakshatra Punarvasu ruled by Aditi. Aditi is the great goddess, the endless mother, the absolute abundance. She is illuminating what it takes to be reborn into our existence to create the fullest most honest manifestation of our path. It’s not about starting from scratch, it’s about commitment to the cycles of doing and undoing, breaking and mending. It’s a cycle of eternity, the work of our soul journey. Recently, through much humble and honest offering, I asked the Mother to speak to me. Show me the way. That was my prayer. She said, stop running away from your life. It meant having hard conversations with myself about all the ways I think I am not worthy of showing up as exactly who I am. The beautiful thing is we don’t even have to know exactly what we are doing, or why, as much as a willingness to trust the inner voice, to follow through with complete trust. So why all the hand wringing and resistance to our here and now? For me, it’s because I am the master of losing my way. I have loved being lost for a long time. When you are lost, you can wander through life and notice all of the beautiful, wild and weird things. Now I see, that it is the tiny little noticings that have the answers. It’s seeing the Mother everywhere in everything. That’s where I am also found. Knowing She supports me means I can show up where I am in full peace. It means I can love immensely from where I am. Breaking and mending, lost and found. Wishing you the blessings of eternal cycles. Aditi is that which is born and that which is yet to be born. Thank you bright mother.

I absolutely adore this child’s heart. When he received Christmas money from his very generous Nonno, he immediately said he wanted to donate to charity. Nonna encouraged me to let him give whatever he wanted. I asked where his heart felt need and he said, the homeless shelter. We called and they needed blankets, so he picked out the coziest, plushiest blankets ever. But more than all of that, he put on his Santa hat and touched the volunteers there with his big smile. They asked if we’d like to take a picture. Sal was thrilled. Of course, when we got back into the car I cried. Happy tears, mommy? Yes! So much pride and moved so deeply with humility at his gentle and sensitive soul. I continue to learn so much from this little human being. My own father lived a life of service. I felt him beaming with joy.
