You may have heard on the news that today, Sunday, 10th August coincides with the occurrence of what is termed a 'Super Moon'. It is something that has occurred 3 times this year, which in and of itself is an extraordinary phenomena - to have that many already in the year when normally there are far fewer.
Another thing that is different about this one is that it is 14% closer to the Earth than any of the other ones have been. This is significant on many levels - one of them being that the waves experienced are likely to be higher than normal, rain and thunderstorms are likely to be more frequent and of stronger intensity. The energy and particles activated in the very air we breathe and touch are also likely to be moving at a faster, more intense and stronger rate than they normally do during a full moon. This is in turn affects the cells and energy levels in our body, as we are - in essence - a trillion celled organism which has evolved in order to have our organs, blood, nervous system,bones, muscles and higher system of thinking - our consciousness - work together the way they do. It goes into quantum physics and mechanics, but essentially as a very quick sum up: our cells are made up of lots of protons, neutrons and electrons swirling around and in a way that means the different parts of our bodies can communicate to do all the things we do without even thinking, and have evolved to let us have higher consciousness and thought systems. Our cells generate their own electricity and energy that can, and has been, proven to be measurable. The air we breathe, the trees and flowers we see, the animals and birds and insects all around us, the foundations of the homes we live in, the food we eat and the things we drink are also all made up of lots of protons, neutrons and electrons swirling around and thereby have their own, unique levels of energy and electricity that their systems have evolved - or we have helped to create when we've created them. (E.g. plastic)
So...when we have a moon that is so much closer to our Earth than it normally is, and when it's the 3rd we've had already this year, it creates an extra-ordinary phenomena and means that our bodies, our cells, and all that is around us is activated at a higher rate, frequency and intensity than they normally are.
We may feel ourselves affected in ways that can confuse us. We may be more irritable than normal, we may have arguments about things that perhaps we wouldn't usually, we may feel we have more energy than we normally do. We may also feel more excitement and drive to start or complete projects or unfinished business. We may feel an itch to go out and do *something*, even if we're not quite sure what that 'thing' is. (If you're curious to find out more about lunar cycle phenomena, a fantastic example to look into is crime rates around the world during even a 'normal' full moon: articles here and here)
Understanding our bodies, the unique ways we each work and are affected by things around us, and understanding what external forces may be taking place that can affect how we feel gives us an immense amount of opportunity and empowerment.
If you are someone who feels an increased amount of energy, why not do something with it? Instead of perhaps feeling fidgety, or even uncomfortable with the higher rate of energy in your body, why not take the opportunity to start or finish something you've been putting off? Or perhaps been thinking about and not started because it wasn't the right time, or any other reason it was put aside? Maybe it's a new kind of exercise, or a room that you'd like to shape into something special, or a task that keeps being put to the bottom of your list but you know ought to be done. With the increase in vibrational frequency that something like a supermoon offers, this is a fantastic time to get going!
If you'd like some inspiration, a brilliant place to look is this incredible programme and Free Giveaway, called Inspired Living. Full disclosure, I am a contributor in the programme, and absolutely, fully, intensely believe in it - it has been a huge part of amazing changes I've made in my own life and has helped lead to what I'm doing now. (My next blog post will share more of how)
If you find yourself feeling irritable or tempers are flying, take a step back and ask yourself if what you're feeling flared up over is truly worth that amount of focus and effort. If it isn't, give yourself a break - take a deep breath before you next speak, or let the person you're speaking to know you are going to go for a walk; you can speak again when you've returned. If someone is being unusually irritable with you, ask them if perhaps they're feeling more ratty than they normally would. Suggest to them that you both take a 10 minute break, and then come back to speak again.
The adage that in order to create wondrous change on the outside, we first need to change what is on the inside is something I absolutely believe. Further, there is a saying that charity begins at home. Meaning, if we wish to enact or effect beauty and empowering change further afield, we can start with what surrounds us and with ourselves.
So, what will YOU do and what amazing doorways and windows will you open? Now is our time. Let's do it!
