Today we experience that very rare occassion, the blue moon occurrence. Although it’s been toned down and sculpted into a very uncreative scientific deformation, it is based on an actual special appearance the moon can sometimes portray.
I read yesterday (paraphrased from I fucking love science):
A blue moon rises from the ashes of something earthly that burned away.
Like a phoenix.
Once in a blue moon, a phoenix comes along. She will die every night to be reborn the next day. From her own ashes she will rise. That what burns her down also sparks her up and awakens her from the dust below. To fly on wings of fire, leaving behind a trail of light & destruction. For everything she touches will be marked by an adorning scar, so she will never be forgotten.
In celebration of the original blue moon, let’s remember what symbolic meaning hides in its shade.
Stop sabotaging yourself by being too open and honest about personal details that outsiders don’t need to know about. Keep some of your mystery (it has a purpose) & emphasize the reality you want to be.
Some people feel urged to tell everyone their deepest secrets, as to distribute the weight of the load on their shoulders, so it becomes less heavy for themselves to carry alone. However understandable, it might not actually seem harmful to share certain things with others, even just the people close to you.
They might not be the ones that cause the harm from the information they receive, though. You might be causing disruptions in yourself through what you choose to deliver.
When you speak out for your insecurities or doubt (or any other thought / emotion), they become real. Expressing and addressing anything that circulates through you emotionally, verbally, mentally and consciously, will establish itself within you as much as you put it out there.
There is nothing wrong with recognizing & acknowledging self awareness or conducting & applying self reflection, but realize that whatever you think about, whatever you build with thoughts, you grant power of existence. By speaking out for them, you give them a voice. The connection between what lives within and what lives in reality is made by your thoughts and actions alone.
Will you satisfy the need for destruction through negative spirals that wrap themselves around you as you let them loose from your own mind?
Will you circle yourself in uplifting spirited inspiration that strengthens your belief system and broadens your perspectives?
Whatever you put out in the world, will manifest itself within you first and foremost. Make sure it’s something worthy, lasting & positive.
Make waves that help move forward.
