This is the month of the Full Strawberry Moon, and Jamie Ridler asks her viewers, “What would I love to delight in this month?” Aaaaaaaahhh! Well, it appears I am still trying to figure this out. My dreamboard took a different look at my month ahead. My board reminded me of miracles, to reach high, make choices, to give up my worries, and if I don’t like the directions I’m headed to take a left turn and continue down the road. I am most drawn by the child and the tree, that I can lean, bend, and shape my world if I put my mind to it.
I’m so happy to be active with this practice. I’m looking for opportunities to share my process with others. I plan to share my 12 months of dreamboards at the close of the year.
I hope you’ve a delightful and healing month of June!
Last night as I gazed out my windows I watched the moon rise full over my year. I knew at 2 a.m. it would officially be the full moon and I could not wait for Jamie’s prompt to start my board. Instead I dove in cutting, trimming, gathering the images that have spoken to me since the New Moon. There were colors, printed papers and textures that called out. By 9 p.m. my board was complete.
I was eager to hear if Jamie’s prompt would fit my collage.
“What are you hungry for under this Full Wolf Moon? The wolf reminds us to connect to our hunger, to notice what desires are calling for our attention. Our dreamboards can help us bring these desires to light and to being! This is an invitation to not just notice our desires but to begin the important work of tending them, stepping into what we can do to honour what we know of our dreams. What a beautiful way to begin the year.”
The Full Wolf Moon asks: “What are you hungry for?”
The interpretation of my board–>
I am hungry for adventure. Big City and Bright Lights. To go further. I dream of a BRIGHT FUTURE! One where Kim’s rules for living are a guiding factor. One of fitness and enthusiasm. One inspired by the things I love. I am in need of great views that spur my fitness and my photography. The word ULTIMATE is bold! I used yellow-gold textured paper, tropical foliage, and brown polka-dots. So along with these city lights from a big city are natural elements, textures, and colors. My earthy nature is present, yet I am being drawn toward something new, fast, sparkling! I am fit, free, and looking forward with gusto!
Now I get to take steps toward creating this future. I will be keeping this year’s vision boards in the same Strathmore Windpower Drawing pad, it is made from 30% post-consumer fiber and acid free. The pad is spiral bound, 11×14 sheets, and 80 pound weight. The product is made regionally by a company in the neighboring state of Wisconsin. This is my first time starting the practice at the beginning of the year with the intent of completing a collage every month on the full moon.
I am working on living an authentic and full life that is powered and inspired by guiding visions and artful endeavours.
Next New Moon: January 23
Next Full Moon: Feb 7 The Full Snow Moon
The next new moon is on my youngest son’s birthday and the next full moon is on my daughter’s birthday. I am anticipating a very powerful moon dreamboard to come of this time.
