The last time I've weighted this much I held another human inside me, pregnant with our son.
Judgement wants to creep in...
"Well, what did you think would happen with all those nightly ice cream cones?"
"Well, it has been a rough 2 months living in quarantine."
I vacillate between these two voices and realize how both of these positions keeps me from seeing the truth...
The truth is that my body is a temple, the temple of my spirit and she deserves my love and devotion.
Something magical happens as I shift to this perspective.
I begin to feel lighter.
No longer weighed down by my own judgement and justification, I can feel the preciousness of my body.
How wonderful! How de-LIGHT-ful!
I am filled with light.
With these new eyes, I now see my body has been tenderly holding my spirit...holding all the ups and downs of these months, holding the grief of what is lost, and the anxiety of what is to come.
I look at my belly, feel her soft curves and wonder...
What if I AM pregnant,...but this time with possibility?
What if I'm like a like a caterpillar stuffing myself to feed this body
that is about to undergo a tremendous transformation?
What if I'm on the verge of breaking free from the chrysalis of my past
so I can spread my butterfly wings and soar into a shiny new future?
Right now it's tempting to be dragged down by the heaviness of these times, and I'm so grateful for my spiritual and coach training that helps me shift perspectives and alchemize the shadows into LIGHT.
Knowing that we are all held by the light is a gift...the light of Spirit, the light of consciousness, the light of the planets...these cosmic allies that can help us see things from a different, more mythic perspective.
This moon cycle we can feel cosmically supported to embrace our magic as we move from earthy Taurus to airy Gemini. It's time to release the heaviness, take a breathe and use our imagination to play, connect and dream in our next new beginning.
This is the moon cycle of the Muse archetype and her gifts of spontaneity, lightness, creativity, imagination and joy ...all of these gifts which help us claim our magic!
Magic, after all, is simply a shift of consciousness.
And I think we all could use a little shifting, magic and fun!
