When there is an influx of light, and especially at times of the full moon, we can become a bit ungrounded.
We can enjoy floating in the light, feeling the bliss of inspiration, dreaming and drifting, and we may experience disturbed sleep. All of these things can pull us out of the deep softness of our bodies.
When energy is shifting within and around us, when we are re-organising our internal selves to accommodate new insights, understandings and new ways of being, it is important that we are fully inhabiting our bodies.
As we offer ourselves greater connection, self-care and nourishment, we will naturally come into balance with the Earth. And vice versa.
This blog title is a modified line from the poem ‘The Cloths of Heaven’ by W B Yeats. I was given this poem some years ago now, and I love the sentiment and simplicity.
It spoke to me today while out walking, as a call to us collectively as human beings. We are living in a time of climate change, crisis and catastrophe on the Earth.
I feel a rising in the feminine energies in the world, within each person and in the consciousness of humanity as a collective.
This is also a potent time of year (in the Northern hemisphere) for the Earth element in Chinese Medicine - a time to connect to our roots, come into harmony with nature, and honour the rich food sources available to us when we look after the environment.
This week a beautiful friend gifted me with Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell. I highly recommend it.
Rebecca's writings really connect with the energy I am sensing at the moment, in the midst of eclipse season, the recent blood moon and the gorgeous Summer we are having here in the UK. This energy is all about the rising feminine, the sacred feminine of the Earth.
I feel now the rising energies of the sacred feminine. I see this showing up in women reclaiming their power and in men returning to true connection with the Earth.
