As we approach the full moon eclipse deep emotions which have not been with me since the last eclipse in September re-emerged. The feelings of desperation felt overwhelming as the images and realizations about my life flooded forward which was not very helpful.
On my way home I stopped and took my dog for a walk along a forest path. I decided to walk up to the waterfall next to the loch. As I walked I started to tune into the elements and into the water in this beautiful loch, asking for help and guidance. The water answered by showing me that at times it is held, like in this loch and at times it flows more freely like over the waterfall towards the sea. It told me it has no choice. That it accepts what is and moves when can. That if held in a loch, then that is where it stays. That we don't really have all the choices we think we have but how we feel about it, our attitude, is what is important.
I started to feel the relaxed, slowed down pace and took a long deep breath...
I tuned into mother earth and felt her solidness, her structure, her support. Again she told me there are no choices about what happens up on her surface, but her deep strong energy was all encompassing and I started to understand.
I sat on a log looking at the gentle waters of the loch contemplating what I had been told, when through a gap in the hills, the moon came floating up, full and bright. The tears flowed down my cheeks as I felt her energy, strong and holding... As the moon came up higher her light created a path on the surface of the water, right to my feet...
Thank you universe for answering my prayer, for guiding me to this place at this time at this exact moment... how blessed we are.
