Earthquakes, fires, and hurricanes, oh my

Moon message NM September 2017

earth in handsAlways it is the same. Things happen in the outer world, and I wonder what in the world is happening!!! How do I find, much less maintain, stability when the world seems to be falling apart?

A few months ago, I decided to revamp my website. I updated information, deleted some things, and added new pieces. In the process, I observed that attending to the website is a reflection of the ongoing, everlasting situation of continuous evolution that is the story of my life. Yes, I am changing. Yes, I am doing some cool things. Yes, I am letting go of some things that need to be let go of. At the same time, I look at what is happening in the world right now and I have to confess that it is overwhelming. I wonder about the big things such as:

Who in the world am I?
What in the world am I doing?
Can I manage amidst all these weird events?
How do I continue to help people?

I asked these questions and answered with these major truths:
1. I am me. I always have been and always will be. My experiences that brought me to this place of “now” are mine to keep. I can own my life. I’m not going anywhere away from me.
2. I have gone through challenges. Yes, some catalysts. Yes, some atrocities. Yes, some painful things. Some of these things involve people I love. Pain happens. Life occurs. There are things out of my control.
3. I have met every single one of those challenges. Yes, I have grown because of catalysts. Yes, I have witnessed atrocities and made it through. Yes, I have healed from painful things. Yes, I have been with loved ones who are going through things. I have met things out of my control with something within my control.
4. What is this thing under my control? It is internal, a place of power within me, which generates health, healing, and balance. Here are some descriptors of the place and the feelings:

  • Heart (the center of my physical body)
  • Soul (the center of my everlasting spirit)
  • Immune system (regenerative power)
  • Gut feelings
  • Knowingness
  • Appropriateness
  • Restraint when it is time to restrain; action when it is time to act
  • Intuition

5. What can I do to maintain balance? Here are some activities that really help:

  • Trust
  • Breathe deep
  • Meditate
  • Sleep
  • Eat organic, plant-based food without white refined sugar
  • Practice yoga
  • Ask for Angel guidance
  • Smile
  • Connect with friends and family

As this new moon occurs and our planet is plunged into yet another earthquake, hurricane, fire, or whatever else can possibly happen, I depend on my place of power to find meaning. Maybe you are doing the same.

Would it help you to compile your own list? What is your place of power? Where is it in your body? What do you do for health, healing, and balance? Send me some feedback if you want. Hugs, Julia
