It’s time again for a full moon dream board. I knew it was coming up, but for some reason I thought that I had this weekend to get myself together. Since I am unprepared to do a collage like I did last time, I’ve put together a pinterest board with the images and inspirations for this month’s full moon.
According to Jamie at Jamie Ridler Studios, the Full Snow Moon
Sometimes we bury our dreams and desires deep within, as though hiding them under layers and layers of snow. Protecting them. Protecting ourselves. Waiting until the time is right for them to grow. Now is the time to tune into your heart, to let your intuition and your dreamboard express and reveal the dreams that are hidden inside. Let the creative process take you below the surface, beneath the layers of safety and protection, guiding you to the innermost dreams sparkling in your soul.
In the Northern Hemisphere the Full Snow Moon asks: “What desires lie deep within?”
In response to that prompt, I created the following board on pinterest:
So I have the following thoughts about what I’ve pinned:
- On my pinterest boards, I rarely pin quotes. I pin things now and again on my Marriage board about loving and strong relationships and how to keep them that way, but outside of that, I don’t pin quotes. I don’t pin inspirational sayings. I have little interest in them. But tonight, that was the first place I went. I guess I was looking for some echo of my soul. Words from others who can perhaps say what I’m feeling better than I am. There’s a lot of quotes there. I think that what it is all about for me is encouragement to follow where my heart desires and to be content and happy about the places I find myself. I’ve been in a bit of turmoil for the last couple of years about where it is I’m heading and what my purpose is. An existential crisis perhaps. I think my soul knows what it needs and what I’m supposed to be doing. I just have to trust it and the process.
- And then there are lots of images of peaceful, calm things. Soft light. Pretty colors. Lush greens. Nature. Discounting the rain that we’ve had for the last four days, in South Mississippi, spring is making her presence known. The azaleas are blooming; the daffodils are long past their prime. We’ve made our first foray into gardening by getting some new plants into the front flower bed, and the sweet husband tried to convince me to get out and do some work during the breaks in the weather on Sunday by offering to buy me more plants. (I didn’t fall for it by the way) As discussed in the last Wishcasting post, I am in some desperate need of peace, and I find it in the outdoors. In cultivation. And fresh air. In green and and water and dirt. It’s been quite a long while since I’ve done that. And I can tell that my soul is crying out for it.
- There are a couple of maternity images. Simply because. I think that is going to be OK. I hope it’s going to be OK. Whatever is going to happen will happen. I have an appointment to see a new doctor on Thursday. Hopefully he will treat me with respect. I don’t know if I can handle another set of asshole doctors and nurses. (with respect to the doctors and nurses I know who are *not* assholes) I’m working on being at peace with whatever it’s going to be. But I hope it’s expansion of our baby family.
What are your deeply held desires? What do you dream about during this full moon?
