“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.” ~L.R. Knost

There is something about that quote that touches the very core of my soul. Lately I’ve asked the question “is this all there is?”. I never thought at this time in my life I’d be asking that question. Even though that’s the question of the day (I tend to ask a lot questions in a day) maybe “is this all there is?” is more about being in a transitional place of deciding what comes next.

Maybe I’m simply in the “ordinary, mundane and routine” place of going through the motions, working (almost) all the time just to stay ahead of the bills and not taking enough time for myself because I haven’t yet chosen what I’d like to create.

Or maybe asking the question “is this all there is?” is what prompts me (us) to look at life as a series of adventures which includes the ‘amazing, awful, ordinary, mundane and routine. Or MAYBE what I consider ordinary, mundane or routine is considered EXTRAORDINARY by someone else. Or MAYBE what I consider ordinary, mundane or routine really is extraordinary!

Not one of us is living a perfectly charmed life that doesn’t include a bit of awful, heartbreaking, ordinary mundane and routine. No matter what you think you see or know about someone, we all have good days, bad days, ordinary days, mundane days and routine, business as usual, days.

Seriously though, how boring would it be if we were never challenged? How would we recognize the miraculous, soul-healing, amazing without having anything to compare it to? The bottom line here is life really is amazing and breathtakingly beautiful. The good, the bad, the boring, the messy, the uncomfortable; All of it is breathtakingly beautiful!

From Ordinary to Extraordinary!

What’s interesting about the different ‘phases’ or growth periods we experience is how we perceive them. What is ordinary to me might seem extraordinary to you. The mundane for me might be exhilarating for you. Have you ever considered the mundane moments are about taking a breather in preparation for the excitement?

There will be a time, not so far from now, that you will look back on this phase of your life and instead of condemning it or beating up on it… Instead of blaming or guilting, you will feel appreciation for it, because you will understand that a renewed desire for life was born out of this time period that will bring you to physical heights that you could not have achieved without the contrast that gave birth to this desire.”~Abraham Excerpted from Boston, MA – October 4th, 1997

Yes, we all go through phases but those phases are not who we are. We are the spirit and soul who lives those experiences and those experiences are to be embraced and appreciated and yes, sometimes even forgiven.

I don’t know. Maybe this really is “all there is” but if it is, I’m good with it because it’s all beautiful. Each phase, every ‘awful’, ‘mundane’, ordinary, and routine turns beautiful. It’s all beautiful really.

Each is an integral part of a breathtakingly beautiful life….so   “Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. [Because] That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.”~Shine Your Light Debbie

Prepare Yourself for the BLUE MOON! July 31, 2015

Blue Moon 07/31/2015If you’ve ever heard the phrase “once in a blue moon” you’re in for a treat as a second full moon shines brightly in the sky on July 31. (It’s also my birthday!)

Blue moons (in astrology) are not really blue but they certainly are rare. A blue moon occurs every 2.7 years. if you’ve ever said “once in a blue moon” you’d like something to happen, now is the time to put a miracle in motion by consciously setting your intentions.

Harness the energy of a full moon!

All full moons are packed with power and people experience the intense energy in different ways. It’s no coincidence (or surprise) if you been feeling “off” the past couple of days. You may feel an excitement or an unsettled feeling in your belly. You may have trouble sleeping, experience vivid (or lucid) dreams, or feel overwhelmed. If so, feel free to blame it on the energy of the full moon.

Just as the full moon lights up the night sky, so too it lights up and magnifies energies we are working on releasing so we can move forward. This particular Blue Moon is in Aquarius and is asking us to pay loving attention to all our relationships including the one we have with ourselves.

If you take time to ground and allow, this moon will help you gain clarity by illuminating your path and direction.  A full moon can turn your world upside down or give you a boost forward. It all depends on what you do with the energy and information you’re receiving. One note of interest is to think back on any projects or communications you started at the full moon a few weeks ago. This Blue Moon will give you an opportunity to fine tune or complete what you started.

Consciously set intentions!

The power of a full moon is exhilarating. It is the perfect time to consciously let go of fear, set your intentions and put dreams in motion for the future. There is a magical quality about setting intentions on a full moon night because what you put in motion now is carried into the universe to start the process. The light of the moon brings clarity in which direction to go.

What better time to create than under the bright, beautiful light of an event that only happens “once in a blue moon”? Every civilization, culture and many religions have some type of full moon ritual. You too can create your very own personal ritual that honors the energy of the full moon and the energy within YOU.

Have fun with it! Go out and howl at it! Stand under the night sky and embrace the energy of the moon to empower you! Bring the energy in to help ground you. Use it to illuminate a path you haven’t noticed before. Allow the moonlight to shine gently into  any darkness you’d like to heal. Embrace the reflection and release.

Set dreams in motion with the intention that whatever happens is with gratitude and for the highest good of all involved. If there’s something you’ve wanted to do or have happen “once in a blue moon” now is your chance to create the mock-up.

Take this second full moon to reflect on how you relate with yourself and the world. Create a full moon ritual that’s not just for “once in a blue moon”.  There is magic, healing, reflection and release in EVERY full moon. Bathe in the moonlight and dance by the light of the moon. ~Shine Your Light Debbie
