When the New Moon arrives, it’s the perfect time for heralding in the new. Time for releasing the old with gratitude and welcoming new projects. Definitely a time for taking a step in the direction you want to move in.
And that is exactly what has been happening today, with the new moon. I stood and watched the sun setting from the lounge window. It was a flaming, vibrant orb, almost like wet dye on one of my silk paintings. Unbelievably beautiful. Quite spectacular. And as it slipped below the outline of rooftops on the horizon, the sky darkened and remained completely dark. The dark of the moon.
Such an exciting time, pregnant with potential. And I knew that today was the moment to make changes.
I had a few changes lined up and had been eying them with intrepidation as they represented a large step towards realising goals of mine which were due for fulfilment. So what did I undertake?
The first thing I did was to bring my 30 day video challenge to completion. I had taken on a commitment to produce and upload a video every day to document what was going on for me in my life and to share my insights with the viewers. I decided to publish these on my current Facebook page which was dedicated to my artwork. But having no other platform to share them on, I decided that this was the best option I had.
I was delighted with the reception they got as they were being exposed to people who had actually signed up to share my artwork with me. Daily support and feedback came flooding back to me in many forms and I was very touched by the general response, confirming that doing video was indeed something I should continue to do.
So when I reached the last day today, I had very mixed feelings. I had gathered momentum and come to love the daily ritual of putting myself out there, irrespective of what response I got. And I had been told that my videos would be missed… I knew that they couldn’t stay on the art page as they were out of alignment with the general themes. I had to take a decision and open a new page.
This page would bring focus to my work as a spiritual teacher and coach and allow me to explore all sorts of topics relating to self help, spirituality and personal power. It would allow this aspect of my work to come to the fore and no longer be overshadowed by my artwork. Now art and spiritual power would stand side by side as partners.
Tonight I launched the new page and it felt quite exhilirating to do so.
And the change continues as I put the finishing touches to the new blog, meaning I will be stepping away from wordpress.com and expanding my horizons.
With every new change I feel the rush of excitement, knowing that anything I am leaving behind is making space for the new. It feels as if this is the new path I am on – one of taking the steps I know intuitively will lead me to where I want to be.
I’d love to have some feedback from you. What changes have you embraced recently in your life and how have you felt about them? Please share you stories below. Thank you.
