I live a pretty magical life. That is not to say that everything goes perfectly smooth and I skip through life with no worries. Once you step on a spiritual path the work begins. You learn that there is dark and light and both need equal time to stay in balance.
The darkness of the lunar phase is an invitation to go inward and listen. The New Moon offers us a chance to listen to the deeper voice within. The one that asks us to make difficult choices, to release the stories that no longer serve and to look at our relationships and work in the world and see what feeds us and what does not.
The voice in this place often asks us to take the leap into the void and "know" we will be caught. It whispers "Trust me" as we strip away the comfort of mundane and choose the path of the mystic and spiritual seeker.
It is not an easy road, but it is magical.
