It’s my birthday and I’ll cry if I want to…

A week ago I was listening to my best friends podcast, Lost. The episode was about two of my other friends unplanned pregnancies…and I was bawling, but not from reasons you would think. They were talking about donuts and laughing. The next day, while eating breakfast with my dad, mom and sister, I started bawling… I was eating bacon. In the past few weeks I have had to struggle holding back my tears and I have no idea why. Well, I have some idea, but crying over bacon? Come on!

The past year of my life, has been one of high uncertainty, high highs and low lows, love, confusion, travel, patience, frustration, and so on. Most recently, the past two months I have been going non-stop between traveling, moving home, catching up with friends and family, the list goes on. It was all bound to catch up to me at some point, and it did. What I learned though is that it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to let it all out because it means you’re letting go. You have to release all of those bad feelings, doubts, fears, hurt to let the amazing things come through. Your body tells you when you need to let it go. It shuts down, forces you to relax and take a break from it all. I was trying to hold it all in, fight the tears, because that’s not me. I’m not an emotional person, or so I thought. I have learned that it’s okay to let it all out. AND if you let it all out at once, just know it’s not about the bacon.

Lately, I have felt myself really connect to the phases of the moon. Now, that doesn’t mean that I live my life by the moon and plan everything around it. It just means that I have noticed that when I’m in a bad or crazy mood, there is usually a full moon the day before or coming up soon. So, to explain a little bit of last week, I looked up what kind of full moon was going on. It just so happens that last month was a crazy month for moons. We had both a lunar and solar eclipse, and after reading about effects from these moons and universal energy shifts and changes, I found out it was totally normal that I was randomly crying for two weeks straight.

In August, we had a Total Solar Eclipse, which in regards to our minds, bodies and souls, it represents a powerful time of healing. The alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth represents the dissolving of differences and the coming together of One. During a Solar Eclipse, emotional wounds can be healed and stronger relationships can be forged. It’s a time for lots of changes and new beginnings…. So, basically exactly where I am at in my life (and I’m sure a lot of others are too). It was a time of chaos and confusion.

On Tuesday night, there was a shift. September’s full moon marked a new beginning. September is the Universal One month in a One universal year, which means it is a time for stepping up your game, looking out for yourself, and putting yourself first. These are all of the lessons of 2017, and they will be amplified all this month. On a side note, I’ve always felt that I have some crazy amount of energy and power and I don’t know if it’s just my attitude towards life, but I am so good at making things happen. Seriously! It only makes sense that this Universal One month of the Universal One year was on my birthday. 😉

I don’t consider myself an expert on  this phenomenon, I just know how I connect to it. So, if you feel like you had some crazy emotional days the past few weeks and a possible shift this week, look into it a little bit farther. Savannah and I also talked about it a little more in her recently released episode of Lost Podcast. Check it out at Subscribe, download and follow along.

Here’s to new beginnings! ❤
