january_fullmoonboad_2013-8618

I am going to ponder on the vision board. and meditate on Jamie Ridler’sprompt, which I actually read after creating this collage, “What are you hungry for under this Full Wolf Moon?” I will journal a bit and sit in silence. Many opportunities are coming my way and I feel a need to listen and focus.

Hope to blog again before or by Wednesday the 30th.

Full Moon Dreamboard–June 2012

June 2012 Full Moon Dreamboard

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!

Full Moon Dreamboard — Full Flower Moon

Jamie Ridler prompts her viewers that the Full Flower Moon asks: “How would you like to bloom? Who are you when you’re in full bloom?” And this month I feel my process did not bring that question to the surface. What I do notice in my dreamboard is simplicity and a lot of space. I see I’m being drawn by the idea of summer, space, the beach, and the open feel of imaginative living.

I asked a yoga instructor in my community for a private session. I want to develop a home practice that honors my body where it is now. I’ve been coping with injuries and perceived limitations. It messes with my mind and spirit. I am trying to let go, blossom, and unfold.

I would like to bloom, like a flower mandala each petal a lesson I can share with others. I am a healer and envision running and owning a healing spa with art and bodywork.

Full Moon Dreamboard — Tending Dreams

What Dreams is it Time to Tend?

Jamie Ridler asks viewers this month  what we’re dreaming under this Full Pink Moon and what needs tending. Finding the answers elusive I turned to the phrase, “What is Essential to me?” I waited for images and words to surface. I listened for that inner knowing. Each time I’d grasp for a dream, my body would ache and mourn.

  • My dreams of running a half marathon seem elusive as I’m nurturing a back injury, mending, albeit slowly.
  • My dreams of returning to my healing practice as a massage therapist seem elusive as well due to my physical connection. My National Cerification lapsed, and new legislation is pending in the State of Michigan that will require me to re-test.
  • My dreams of building my yoga practice are on hold as I heal from injury.

Each time I reach for a goal or dream, I have to edit, shift, breathe, and adaptat.

I feel held back by my physical body, medical debt, and the slow healing process.

There was a time in my life where I could make a strong intention and make steps toward fulfilling that dream.

Now, I tell myself the universe must be trying to tell me something I cannot yet realize.

I do feel forward motion in the following areas:

  • Many years ago I took level 1 and 2 of Reiki. But since so much change has occurred in my life, I felt compelled to participate in a new class. Later this month I will be attuned with Reiki energy and work toward an energetic healing practice.
  • I have left my old “day job” and found a new full-time position.
  • I continue to take photos and develop skills as a photographer.
  • I am able to walk, again, and hike short distances.

The plan to move forward will be to honor my body and it’s needs in order to facilitate healing. To allow myself rest and creative outlets. And to listen for what the Creator has planned for me.

My dreamboard shows I might be willing to walk, rather than run (at least for now). That it is essential to be outdoors, to have options, choices and adventures. I see a nest with a feather which symbolizes nurturing, safety, and eventual flight. This is hopeful (smile).

You, too,  can join Jamie Ridler, myself and others in making vision boards on the full moon.

Full Moon Dreamboard — What’s Stirring?

March Full Moon Dreamboard, 2012 ~ Artist Kim Nixon

Jamie Ridler asks this month, “What’s stirring?” March is the Full Worm month, the month when “…the earth starts to soften and the burrowers of her soil find their way to the surface.”

How exciting to start experiencing change in my life. I’ve been seeking clarity and direction.

I am experiencing change in my:

  • Health
  • Employment
  • Friendships
  • Family
  • and in my Dreams.

With change there is some upheaval, but I am trying to stay in the moment and at peace.

The images in my collage were surprising. The elephant, Ganesha, is often seen as the remover of all obstacles. The Hummingbird a tireless winged creature that survives in spite of its small size. The woman is not running but walking, and she is walking into the future or into the unknown. Free your mind and your body will follow is a strong message as injuries have been bothersome and my health very challenging the last few months.

I want to be running, but seem willing to walk. And I am willing to walk into the future. I asked God to provide me with clarity, to assist in narrowing my focus so I’m less scattered. I am trusting the process.

Join Jamie Ridler and others at Jamie Ridler Studios to learn more about Full Moon Dreamboards.

Next month is the Full Pink Moon on April 6th. You can start gathering your images under the new moon March 22.
