The full moon illuminates the shadows in nature and within ourselves. A full moon is the peak of the lunar cycle. Everything that has come up for you since the last new moon is now visible if you are willing to see and feel it with your eyes and heart. If you are willing to be honest with yourself, you can learn so much about your journey.
Full moons shine their light so bright that it’s similar to turning on the high beams in a car on a dark night. The shadows will disappear and we can see what’s in front of us a little more clearly. But maybe only a little. Always remember that not everything is what it seems. A simple shadow can change our perception on what’s real and what we perceive to be real.
Imagine it’s dark and you are walking home. You see something up ahead but you aren’t sure what it is. Your heart rate goes up and you get nervous. Once you get closer, you realize it’s a tree branch and there was absolutely nothing to fear.
Think about the last time you dealt with emotions that made you uncomfortable. You felt the resistance within and perhaps pain came up as a response. Instead of sitting with the emotion, instead of turning the light on, you felt threatened. You never really processed the emotion instead you made the discomfort stronger for the next time. Imagine if you didn't pass that tree branch and instead turned around frightened to keep going? Instead, can we let our emotions pass instead of holding them in? Or even better, imagine communicating your emotions so you don't ever have to hide from them.
Full moons illuminate the sky and they illuminate our souls. Full moons will illuminate the shadows that we have lurking within. This is a perfect time to sit down with yourself, listen and be real. It’s important to look at yourself without judgement. Instead of pointing the finger and feeling that we should be stronger, why is this happening, when is it going shift, can we notice what’s coming up and keep looking within? Can we experience the moment? Can we keep ourselves open?
Do you believe that you are in the right place? Can you accept your life where it is right now? Can you trust that everything is going to be okay? This full moon in pisces is a nice reminder that everything is connected and our energies are more important than the emotional response that comes up. Try using the energies of the full moon to give you the confidence that you need to trust in your path.
Life is beautiful and it will push us to evolve. Growth involves pain. Pain feels heavy but we don’t have to absorb the pain. We can keep going, one step at a time. We can strengthen our intuition and communicate first with ourselves on what we need, what we want, how we feel, and how we can better support our dreams and goals.
Dissolve what holds you back from greatness. Be honest with yourself and keep going.
