Mother Nature is the key! These were the first (and very poignant) words that I received when I began to meditate for this month’s Full Moon. In the lead up to writing this piece I kept feeling the need for refreshment. Not so much in the way of quenching my physical thirst but more in the sense of a spiritual one. I have been shown (by spirit) images of flowers and greenery, pushing the notion that we need to lighten our very heavy and dense grounding energy from last month’s rather electric full moon.
We touched on getting into nature last month to assist in grounding ourselves. This was more to stabilize our energies and secure ourselves to the earth plane. The energy is shifting and as we go into the ‘Pink’ Full Moon the uplifting we should begin to feel, encompasses the same growth and regeneration patterns that enable plants to grow. The ‘Pink’ moon refers to the appearance of ground phlox or pink moss commonly the first appearing flower of spring in parts of the northern hemisphere. Although we are in the southern parts of the world and this doesn’t reflect with our season’s, the name given to the moon is still accepted here and celebrated. This connects also with the soft and peaceful energy that flowers and nature provide. I want you to imagine the sensation you get when you smell freshly cut flowers from a garden or the scent of a florist when you walk by. This is the refreshing sensation that I am feeling we need and what I have been guided to pass on to you this month.
As with all living things, we need to nurture ourselves and feed our physical and spiritual beings. It is important to keep a balance also, too much work on our physical and we forget to tend to the soulful side. Likewise, not attending to the needs of our body by healthy eating, exercise, sleep and so on, will have an adverse effect on our etheric selves. This is a balance that every human being needs to learn. I assure you, we all struggle with it at some point or another and it is certainly not something that we can ignore. Both sides, physical and spiritual feed each other. Meditating and energy balancing helps to clear toxins whilst exercising or forms of body movement release endorphins, in turn supplying nourishment to our spiritual wellbeing. We are a complex piece of matter taking thousands of years of development and although our complicated makeup requires continued effort, the message we are getting in connection with the moon’s energy is to nourish what we have.
I have taken a card from Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle deck by Lucy Cavendish, artwork by Selina Fenech for you, to go with my messages for the April Full Moon. I felt these cards have a calmer, lighter energy that reflect what I am feeling. The card that popped up for me in connection to this month’s Full Moon was ‘Mother and Daughter’. (Crystal’s shown in picture are Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Green Aventurine). I couldn’t have asked for a better, more direct message from this card. Its simple messages are Mothering, Teaching, Sharing knowledge and nurturing self-worth. As a mother nurtures and tends to their young, so should we. Becoming attentive to our own needs and sharing our love and wisdoms with others. Have faith in your ability to do this, we are all born with the ability to heal, by touch, by words, or simply by being love. Love is what makes the world go around, show love to one another and to ourselves, the world will become a healthier and happier place.
My simple message is. Get out in the garden, sit and share a cup of tea with a friend. Bask in the brilliance of the full moon with a candle or some crystals. Do at least one thing that is for you and you only. It doesn’t have to be outlandish, just something that brings you internal peace, even if it is just for a few minutes. We all live busy lives, let us not forget that the foundation in which we live is internal. Our soul shines brighter the more we love.
Thank you, happy Full Moon.
