As someone who carries crystals around with me on a daily basis, and has my “go to” tarot reader on speed dial, I’ve never been one to shy away from exploring the mystic. Energy healers, shamans, meditation, I’ve dabbled into all of it. However - a Full Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse Women’s Gathering, this would be a first, and exactly where I found myself last Friday.
So what do you get when you fill a beautiful space with women gathering to harness the potent energy of the moon? Two words - you get magic and growth. The evening was filled with healing and empowerment, laughter and tears, and a whole lot of hope as we all move forward on our paths.
The beauty of the evening was the space we all held for each other to set intentions, clear out our old energy, and reflect on the potential each one of us holds inside of ourselves. Many times we get so caught up in our day to day responsibilities, that we can get lost in taking time to slow down and think about what is maybe no longer serving us in our hearts and in our lives. To be in a room full of goddess energy all on the same mission - to be better versions of ourselves, it was hard not to feel moved to open up to possibilities. Many of us were strangers in the room - but that did not stop us from showing up as our authentic selves and being brave enough to do the work.
The interesting thing about a gathering like this is the surprises that happen - you may think you are there to work on a particular issue with yourself, however, as you dig a little deeper, you may realize you are releasing so many things that you may not have even realized were holding you back. That evening we danced, we healed, we laughed, we got vulnerable - and we all walked away with an intuitive knowing that we were exactly where we were supposed to be.
