The Full Harvest Moon is nearly here, and you’re invited to join me live in our Yoga Goddess Facebook Support Circle to meditate with Miranda Gray’s Worldwide Full Moon Meditation. Together we’ll open to the flow of our womb cycles and our life cycles…learning to dance our changes rather than resist them.==>> RSVP TO JOIN THE MEDITATION ON THE FULL HARVEST MOON
This Harvest Moon has me thinking of everything that happened for me exactly one year ago…when I cancelled our Harvest Moon meditation at the very last minute, because I’d just found out my IVF failed and I was staring down the deepest hole of despair I’ve ever known.
(If you missed that story, you can catch up with it here.)
That’s why, when I read Miranda Gray’s theme for this Harvest Moon and the moon rays of blue and green, I loved it instantly (and really, I had to laugh too, because how perfect):
The Blue Ray brings us the ability to flow with the cycles of the womb and of life – to dance our changes rather than resist them. The beautiful Green Ray brings the abundance of Nature into our womb so that we can feel the connection of our womb to the creativity of Mother Nature.
Dance our changes rather than resist them.
I’d done the IVF on my own. Every step had fallen into place perfectly. Every step felt like the universe had my back.
And then…the whole thing fell apart.
When I received the call with the news that my final embryo had been discarded, I was sitting in my car reading an email on my phone: an invitation to a seminar in Asheville, North Carolina with my favourite spiritual teacher.
I immediately called my best friend.
I felt completely lost, paralyzed with shock and grief.
My best friend has never in a decade of friendship given me advice.
He said to me: “Go to Asheville.”
In that moment I was faced with a fork in the road: I could stay where I was, falling into a pit of hopelessness and despair, or I could get on a flight to Asheville.
Those were my 2 choices.
It was up to me to decide to listen or not to listen.
To dance my changes rather than resist them.
Even in my utter devastation, I had enough awareness to recognize that when someone who’s never told me what to do tells me what to do, this was not the time not to listen.
Let me be clear: It wasn’t an enthusiastic yes. It was resigned. But just that was enough.
I booked the seminar. I booked the flight. I got myself to the airport.
And because I did that, I had a transformative experience with my teacher who showed me that my inner being knew I did not want to be a single mother and the Universe had something better for me. And then I hitched a ride downtown and hopped out of the car at an intersection at the exact same time a man arrived at the light from the other direction.
The man I’ve now been dancing with for one full year.
Only the Universe could create that configuration. No amount of planning, orchestrating, even envisioning could have made that happen, because it was totally outside of anyone’s conscious choice-making control.
When I think about that, I know without a doubt that the Universe can do anything.
So this is a long way of saying…I’m really excited to meet with you on this Harvest Moon and open to receive the precious ability to flow with the cycles of the womb and of life.
If there are struggles in your life right now that are not what you planned on — if you’re staring down a black hole of despair — if the cycles of your womb or the cycles of life are bringing you changes that you’re resisting — let me be the voice telling you “Just show up for something new.”
Show up to meditate with the Full Harvest Moon next Sunday.
See what the Universe might have in store for you when you open up and dance.
Here’s what’ll happen when you join me for the live cast:
- We’ll start by connecting with all the women who’ve come together live, forming our worldwide virtual circle as we introduce ourselves and share what’s brought us here.
- I’ll guide you through Miranda Gray’s Full Moon Ray Meditation of Blue and Green.
- We’ll share what came up for us during the meditation, supporting and virtually holding our sisters.
Our meditation is happening on Sunday, September 15 at 12:45 pm EST / 9:45 am PST / 5:45 pm UK, 10:15 pm New Delhi.
