I stayed up late to watch and meditate on the moon magic happening in the sky last night. Read on below the slide show if you’re interested in a few of my contemplations. Otherwise, just enjoy the show;-)
The first of my two big insights last night related to how it seemed as if I was watching a whole month of a moon cycle happen in two hours. As many traditions encourage connecting intentions & wishes with the cycles of the moon, I decided to do a little intention setting for some things I’d like to see happen a little quicker than the casual route. The other insight goes along the lines of understanding that our perception of the world is made of light and shadow. When the light is shining bright we sometimes miss the more subtle details of things. You can see in the pictures when the light is so bright we miss a lot of really beautiful detail. The eclipse can be a time to let ourselves go into our dark corners in order to understand what’s happening deeper beneath the surface of our lives. There is great beauty even in the dark corners of life for those who have the courage to open their minds to that perspective. Shine Yoga’s Meditation Monday is to open your heart to your own dark shadows and those of others. It is only in cultivating acceptance that we can create harmony between life’s complementary opposites.
