She’s coming! Look out, world. #themouse

I made a wish last night under the New Moon. It was a wish for help in manifesting my next children’s book. This one I wish to be even better than the last. That’s how I push myself, that’s how I grow and get better at this creative life thing. I’m not doing it alone this time. I’m reaching out for help. It feels good to ask for help, not something that has ever come naturally to me. It’s humbling and awesome and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

May you whole heartedly engage in the reverent ritual of creative manifestation.

Love,

Bonnie

So where are we now in the process? We are at the Balsamic Moon and the last phase of the Moon Cycle before we begin again with the next New Moon.

Just as balsamic vinegar is a potent and flavorful liquid produced through a reduction process, so is the Balsamic Moon phase a time for Continue reading

Your Creativity & The Moon Cycles (Part 6: Disseminating Moon)

MoonWhew! How was that Full Moon, people? Anything unexpected happen? Personally, I felt a little overwhelmed by it. I took a few naps, slept extra deeply at night, and woke up with some serious bed-head on more than one occasion. How about you? What was your reveal? Now that you have had a few days to ponder your reveal, you might be thinking… what do I do with it?

Welcome to the Disseminating Moon phase! This is where the magic really begins. To get started here’s a visualization for you…

It’s a super hot day, yeah, like Vegas hot! Ever feel it? It’s like stepping into an oven. You look into the sky for signs of relief, and there’s a huge cloud overhead. Suddenly, the sky opens up and it starts to rain, gently at first. The raindrops first feel warm on your skin, then as they increase in number, they feel cool and refreshing. Before you realize it, your internal thermometer has dropped ten degrees and all is right with the world again. You’re smiling, your energy is back, and you’re ready to indulge in your next creation…
