ENTERING THE LUNAR MOON OF CHALLENGE!
“The truth is that life is neither blessing you or punishing you.
It is working with you to help you
awaken to the truth of who you are.
Life is your teacher.”
On the 13-Moon Natural Time Calendar
within the Spiral of the Year,
Aug 23-Sept 19
always correlates to
The Lunar Moon of Challenge
Code Words: Polarize ~ Stabilize ~ Challenge
Our totem is the scorpion.
Our Tone of Creation is 2.
…From One, comes Two…
Polarity is counterbalance
Yin/Yang ~ Inner/Outer ~ Dark/Light ~ Contract/Expand…
Our invitation is to accept the dance of polarity -
to embrace that life is an unfolding play of forces
polarizing, challenging and stabilizing.
Let us use this time cycle to explore the other side of the coin -
How might we polarize some aspects of our usual modes, our habitual ways of showing up in our lives? How can we counterbalance energies to invoke a greater sense of wholeness?
In contemplating the code word Stabilize, what area of our life or our being are we drawn to focus this energy into?
The Lunar Tone Two always reminds us that from the miniscule to the vast, challenges are inherent in this journey. As sacred gifts from the Cosmic Architect that lives in our own evolving heart, challenges can guide us beyond our limitations and into our blossoming. As we voyage through this life, we can discover the path of acceptance in easing the inner and outer struggles, finding that as we accept the infinite challenges in our life as opportunities to grow, the Way opens.
Being conscious of the power of our creative perception is the key, for as we view the ongoing flow of challenges in our lives as our custom initiations, we can receive the love and benevolent intentions that the Universe is bathing us in. No matter how things may be appearing, if we are willing to look within the essence of life, we find that our growth is encoded into its natural design.
When we instead resist the challenges that come our way, frustration breeds, and stress and strife set in our attitudes and perceptions. Resistance becomes an endless cycle that generates more unnecessary hardships and downward spirals. When we can continually accept the circumstances we find ourselves in, surrendering to the synchronicities inherent in our lessons, we can discover the ways to transform our problems into challenges and meet the possibilities with receptivity and gratitude.
One of the Divine challenges we are provided with is the faculty of creative perception. How we view and experience our Dream of life is a reflection of how we are navigating the spectrum of our consciousness. In my human experience, the ongoing opportunity is to question and become mindful in seeing what stories I am telling myself about Who I Am and what Life is? What beliefs am I investing in? Out of the realm of infinite potentiality, how is the mind solidifying and sculpting the dream field? To me, this is the ultimate challenge and opportunity – to root to the ecstatic essence of simply being alive.
