I personally have bridged the schism within myself through strengthening my connection with the moon. 10 years ago, I was so depleted when getting a divorce, dealing with autoimmune flare-ups, anxiety, depression, felt lost and alone. One of the things that really helped to get back towards healing: getting nourishment and love not from another person or thing but from celestial beings: earth, moon, sun. Having that connection helped me feel the condition of love that I can’t really explain such as feeling limitless and eternal. As a way to combat feeling alone I got quiet and sat with the moon to get that connection and feel myself being filled up from the inside out.
I have just launched a course on the moon. It touches further upon the history of the moon, the moon cycles and phases, and it’s incredible connection between the feminine. In the course I will talk about how to connect with the moon through creating rituals, altars, and making teas and tonics so that you can always feel supported by the moon throughout the stages of the years, months and weeks.
My hope is that after this course you are able to feel more connected to yourself, and the incredibly powerful and nourishing moon energy.
