I sit here lost in my thoughts and I wonder to myself what shall I muse about today on this Monday? I have woke up feeling exhausted from all that magical lunar energy that was shared across the globe last night. The truth is I spend a lot of late nights with the moon as my company. Last night wasn’t any different except of the status of the moon in all it’s super blood moon glory!
Unfortunately cloud cover impeded my viewing experience yet I knew there was magic happening up there. That helped me to feel connected with the rest of the world and their revelations as we were all gazing upon the same splendour. The lunar vibration in the air was electric and I felt old ideas, thoughts, and patterns start to fall away. Only to have new ideas, creative thoughts, and a sense of renewal take it’s place. A time of rebirth and renewal will begin to take shape in my life and things will start to make sense again. Where I will be blossoming and beginning to thrive instead of just survive!
I like to think of the moon as my late night companion. He comforts me when I can’t sleep due to worry, anxiety, wrapped up in an insomnia based package. When I’m awake listening to the sounds of snoring drifting from each of the bedrooms in my household. As I make my rounds checking on my children tucking them in, tidying up their rooms, making sure they’re organized for school. I then go back and check and re-check my youngest as he suffers with sleep disordered breathing. After two years, countless hours, days, weeks, and months of sleep deprivation he will have a poly sonogram to investigate what the problem is.
I’ve been through a lot to get him help and haven’t given up when told he had a long tongue that was falling back in his throat and obstructing his airway. I have held him in my arms as his body relaxed and his head tilted back and he stopped breathing. I have shook him awake and cried countless years of tears waiting for his breathing pattern to continue slow and steady.
During these times the moon has been my best friend comforting me when no one else could. Seeing my tears and without judgement I continued to let them fall until I was emotionally spent. My exhaustion knows no end so I do my best to keep healthy with exercise and proper nutrition. I have ran in empty for far too long so self care has become my saving grace.
Tonight won’t be any different from any other night. I’ll make the school lunches, bath, book, bed routine will commence with my children. They will read to, loved, cuddled, and prayed for. And the moon will be there for me as I read, write, think, and pray to get through another day watching over me like an old friend. Departing wisdom and magic upon me right when I need it the most.

this was beautiful Jeanine! The moon is also my companion, so much that my oldest daughter´s name is Luna. I wish the best for your son! hugs.
Thank you so much O! I love that name for your daughter. We will have that connection across the miles with our moon as our companion. ?❤️
I have always been a lunar baby, the orb and I have a special bond…many a night I have danced under the full moon and not always clothed….LOL
I’m happy to read that, my Mom told me the same thing when I was younger. I imagine it would be very freeing to dance naked in the moonlight. ?
it is – you must try it sometime all by yourself is even releasing….
I will have to do that definitely indoors thought my neighbours might end up reporting me for indecent exposure. ?
that’s a start…….
I feel a blog post coming on after my experience. ?
fantastic….let it go…put on your favorite music, light some candles, turn off the lights and let your self go….feels like freedom to me…my husband thinks I am crazy and won’t try it…LOL
I think we all need to go a little crazy sometimes it’s freeing! I’m already looking forward to this thank you for your encouragement. ??
anytime…we were born naked so it should be a natural state in our life at certain times….have fun…I have friends who clean there house naked….with locked doors and closed curtains….of course…I lived on the beach for years with my parents. no neighbors..who both worked so I was free to do what I wanted to during the day…we moved to a town, and I found my standing at a window butt naked looking out realizing to late we had neighbors…looking in…I casually walked away to never do that again….lol good thing I don’t embarrass easily….
Oh my I used to be more freeing like that when I was living in a basement suite then I moved to a duplex and roamed around only to notice I was on display to the local farmers! I do agree we were born naked and the only reason for clothing is to keep from being messy. After kids my carefree days are few and far between. Time to recapture them again before it’s too late. ?
oh yes….reclaim it….
Amen wahoo now to plan accordingly as the weather is cooler with the autumn chill in the air. I’ll crank the heat, the tunes, and let the magic happen. ✨?
Me too. ?
Related so much these words. The moon is a late night comfort here too. Beautiful.
Thank you so much Rachel. I think it’s comforting to know we’re looking at the same moon across the miles. ?❤️
