Moving to Bellingen has facilitated a shift in me from simply observing the moon and taking a intentional yet superficial involvement in my lunar rhythms, so deepening my understanding of how Mama Quilla (the ancient Incan Moon-Goddess) influences me, and how surrendering to the flow can enrich my life, and create space and peace therein.

This new moon just passed, I was invited into a circle of women to share a meal, some feminine support, and to voice our intentions for the coming month. I was moved deeply by the gathering, and feel a special connection to each of the women over and above the bond I already have with them- some of my most beloved friends.

My intentions for this moon revolved a lot around healing issues- not so much situations, but energies below the surface that were creating situations. I feel now that through my intentions and actions to clear those issues, I have created space to re-vision my life and start living with more intergrety and bliss.

A couple of days ago, thanks to a weekly child minding swap I have with a dear friend, I had the time and space to spend a  day engaging in self renewal and eliciting love for myself and my life. From this organically came my “visions for a beautiful life”.

Now, as the moon approaches fullness, I am going to write this synergistic vision down, not so much as a speaking of intention, but of a commitment and pledge to shift into this life, as the moon gives me her power to bring my life, too, to total fullness.
