Last night I had an interesting experience. I was about to go to bed, and closing the curtains when I was hit by the light of the moon. Her brightness startled me. The light was so strong, even though she wasn’t even full yet!
I have always had a thing for the moon, the associations with the Feminine, with magic, with the Moon Goddesses…
This time though, I decided to do more than enjoy the visual and mythological aspects of the moon.
One of the effects of an ever ongoing process of spiritual transformation has been the opening up of my senses, and I have happily begun ‘feeling’ trees, places, animals, rocks, reading the energy of people…
So now I decided to ‘feel’ the moon. I deliberately opened up my senses to her light as it washed over my face, my body. I consciously let her in. I was amazed by her softness, her kindness. The energy of the moon is indeed feminine, but to feel it is to really know it! Like a soft, pleasantly cool dress of milky silk, like the balmy waters of the Greek sea, enveloping me, soothing, soft and compassionate. So lovely.
It occurred to me that you can see and know a person, a heavenly body, a place, a building all your live… but you don’t truly know them until you feel them.
In my life I have been fooled by words, by people, by the image of themselves they projected. I have been afraid of false images created by the media that hid the most lovely of beings, like that of a dog portrayed as the most vicious of all dog races, that turned out to be one of the most loving souls I have ever met.
We can be deceived by words and images, but we can know the truth of a thing, a person, a being by feeling them. My feelings have never led me astray. I look forward to meeting the Moon again soon… maybe this time, I can listen and receive a message from her as well!
