Today is the first full moon of 2018. It is said that full moon represents things, projects or phases in life reaching to culmination, to completion, becoming full, to end and after this End there is space created for new, for a fresh beginning. Until the next new moon we prepare the field for new seeds to be planted.
However i had not experienced the synchronicity of moon phases aligned with the events in my own life as strong as today.
Today marks the day of our decision. Finally bringing our Cambodia experience to an end (at least for this year) to start a new journey. After 3,5 months here, we’re ready to move on.
While reflecting on my experience here, going through my stuff, trying to clear out some weight, i found a sketch i did a while ago. Three months ago before the season actually has started, the first place we held our Reiki and Mandala workshops in Otres was ‘Casa La Loba’ (house of the wild female wolf) and the owner of the place was not here, she let us use her ‘casa’. Later during my stay i read parts and pieces of the book ‘women who run with the wolfs’
And today right at the full moon, feeling still very empowered by the strong vibes of the ‘new year’ and my resolutions i found the sketch of ‘la loba’
I decided it deserves to be complete. And i know it’s only complete with two sides together, yin and yang, angel and evil, kind and strong, gentle and fierce.
I remember the old Cherokee teaching of two wolves. Here i share it , wishing all of us to find the courage and resources to let go of everything that doesn’t seve us anymore and to be able to take the new day with excitement.
It is said the hardest decision in life is to decide wether to try harder or to let go. I hope we all make the right choices this full moon.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life:
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
”It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil–he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you–and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
