Processing emotions and letting go is bloody hard, especially when we are dealing with emotions that have been buried for an age. Buried so deep, they have been relegated to the subconscious realm. So when something cosmic comes along, like the recent supermoon, to affect us all on some level, however well we may seem in ourselves mentally and physically, the moon pulls at our waters to stir up some unresolved issues that are ready to be released. We are caught completely unawares. Where the hell are these waves of emotions, anger and fear coming from?
Unlike trees, who manage to let go of their no longer serving leaves with such ease, flow and grace, we humans have heads, brains and egos to contend with. Heads that we have been taught from an early age to use as our primary source of all knowledge. So how can we make these waves a little easier on ourselves? Maybe we can look to nature to learn from her wisdom.
Trees don’t have heads. They have great big strong trunks, well rooted in the earth, reaching towards the light of the Sun. Let’s try to be more embodied in our awareness rather than all heady. There are many ways of doing this, from as simple as stepping onto the grass with your bare feet, to dancing, yoga, playing sport, playing music, being creative. Let’s make these transitions a little easier on ourselves!
