Lately, I've been getting into a habit of reading in bed each night before I go to sleep so, after finishing another chapter of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle last night around 9 PM, it was time for lights out. At around 10:30 PM, I suddenly jolted upright with a knowing that it was a Full Moon night. I quickly jumped out of bed, checked the Australian Government Geo-Science website just to be sure and it was confirmed.....the night had gifted us with a beautiful full moon DownUnder. So I gathered up my tools for my Earth Healing ritual, and made my way outside. The full moon was bright and clear, claiming centre stage in the night sky with not a cloud to be seen. I ceremoniously laid out my tools - a clay disc to represent Mother Earth, a green candle to represent Nature, two rose quartz gems to help in sending love and healing to the Earth, and a Buddha bell to signal the beginning and end of my prayer meditation. I felt a sense of hopefulness as I meditated for a while on sending love and healing to the Earth. After the ceremony, I went back to bed feeling in a very positive and happy mindset. There is still a lot of good in this world.
Today, I did some alterations to a pair for board shorts for Beau, then later, taught Brad how to knit a flat piece on a circular loom. I confess that I did look up the directions on Google and I found this link on YouTube to be the most helpful.
