With New Year’s resolutions still two months away,
and this year’s resolutions a distant, forgotten memory,
have we become bitter, weary, and overwhelmed with stress
over all the chaos and negativity in the world right now?
Whether it’s anxiety over employment, finances, the affordable healthcare act, or the approaching holidays,
bitterness, cynicism, and stress can become an unshakable burden.
It’s a new month,
and another opportunity for a new start.
As November’s new moon approaches on Sunday, we have the opportunity to tap into lunar energies for positive change.
The new, or dark, moon phase combines the gravitational forces
of both the sun and the moon. And this month’s mew moon will also eclipse the sun in some parts of the world.
Traditional cultures have long regarded the new moon as a fertile time for planting the seeds of change.
It is seen as an ideal time to set intentions for things you’d like to create, develop, cultivate, or make manifest.
Whether you believe this to be true or not is irrelevant to the cumulative effect that negative thought patterns
can have upon our bodies and well-being. Devoting some time to meditation is good place to begin.
It is in those moments of clarity that we can begin to reflect upon the possibilities.
