There is nothing better than a Monday new moon. Mondays traditionally are when we get back to business, create our week, & set our intentions. On new moons, this is also what we are invited to do. It is an energy of creation and starting out fresh. Isn’t it wonderful that we get a new moon every month? A new opportunity to say, YES, I am worthy and I choose to create that which I desire.
Sometimes, we can find ourselves in a place though where we are not clear what we desire. For me, these can be some of the most difficult times. Even though I have learned over and over again that I am a part of nature and have cycles, sometimes when a cycle comes that feels slower, unclear or painful, I have a hard time trusting that this is just a part of my nature and not an indication that every choice I have made is wrong. When you are a creative artist in this world and choose to be bold and say I have a unique voice to share and I am worthy of making a living at it, on the days that you’re not so sure about that, your doubts can get very large. You can begin to look outside yourself and wonder why you didn’t make some more traditional and perhaps “safer” choices. At least I can.
Each times this happens, however, I return to what feels true to me and am reminded of a great quote from the Bhaghavad Gita, “It is better to do your duty and fail, then succeed at doing someone else’s duty”.
On this new moon, I recommit to what I feel my duty in this lifetime is and trust that not only am I worthy of great success, but that the journey of it each day and my continued belief in creativity and what I have to offer is success in itself.
Thank you for listening and reading and journeying with me on this little corner of our world. In honor of February and all the LOVE that tends to be floating around I wanted to share my track Gate Gate with you. It’s a great mantra of compassion and heart opening. When I recorded it last March, It gave me such joy and I offered the vibration up to all beings that we might continue to open our hearts and trust our true path.
May this new moon bring you Peace, Joy & Creativity.
