Day Three Adventure: Stargaze Don’t be afraid of what you’ll see in the dark…
Stargazing~ My fascination with the moon began in my early childhood. My Mother tells the story of my great-grandfather holding me in his arms and each time he would look away from me I would reach for his cheek, look him directly in the eyes and simply say…. MOON.
Ah the moon belongs to everyone The best things in life they're free Stars belong to everyone They cling there for you and for me ~ Sam Cooke
Grab your WalkAbout Wild Kit and head to a field, as far from city lights as you can. Where you have an unobstructed view of the night sky. Make yourself as comfortable as you can making sure there is nothing that will steal your peace. Close your eyes, take a long slow relaxing breath, and now slowly open your eyes to the magic of the night sky. Is the moon new, full, waning or waxing? Do you see the Big Dipper? Little Dipper? What about the seven sisters? Perhaps a shooting star or a comet. Maybe you have a visit from fireflies which remind us of the importance of internal character and the light from the firefly represents hope, guidance, inspiration and awakening. They ask us to listen to our hearts and return to our true natural state. Stay here for at least 30 minutes connecting with the earths energy, the moons energy and the light and wisdom of the fireflies.
WalkAbout Wild journal prompt: What did it feel like looking at the stars? What did it make you think about our universe? Did your energy change?
