“The desire to reach the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.” Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist

How was your weekend? There was some pretty intense lunar energy going on and for you sensitives it might have brought up a lot of stuff. So what happened besides Cinco de Mayo? LOL May 5th brought a lunar eclipse also known as the ‘Flower Moon’. Spiritually the invitation to ‘dive deep’ into what’s been deeply buried was offered. Emotional breakthroughs may have been felt resulting in greater feelings of being free. For some of you “The desire to reach the stars” may have felt real. However, exploring your hearts’ desire, what you feel most passionately about, may have arisen. It’s, once again, another opportunity to let go of old stuff and look at new opportunities that support your hearts’ desire and begin a new way of being – connecting and making choices from your heart!

Perhaps another way to look at it is to ask, “Am I ready to become a new human being?” Are you ready to change how you interact with yourself and others? What does your heart desire? Is it different from what others think you want or what you want to do to please someone else? Are you ready to let your imagination come out and play along with your High Self and Soul to help you create a new and more expansive way to BE? The 13th century poet, Islamic scholar, and Sufi mystic, Rumi, has said that “The desire to know your own soul will end all other desires.” Hmmm. I’m still in the beginning stages of becoming more intimate in my relationship with my soul. I find great peace, love, and joy as I quietly enjoy my exploration. I understand we aren’t separate and yet as I interact more consciously with soul I feel more integrated. Does this make sense? At this stage I find that I desire fewer material things and cherish and value my relationships and possibilities more.

Vietnamese Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh, has said that “Living our life fully and deeply requires courage. If we cannot be happy right now, we need to ask ourselves why. We need to find out what it is. What’s weighing us down or pulling us away from the present moment.” There have been many opportunities this year to release “What’s weighing us down or pulling us away from the present moment.” All that we have to do is choose to release it. Choose to be willing to change. Choose to remain open to receive what’s new and waiting for us. Are you ready to dive deep into and draw from the well of courage within you? Are you ready to find your passion and joy? It’s waiting for you to re-discover!
