Good grief, have we had enough gray days or what? I've asked myself that a lot recently. Then, this morning I heard a voice within ask, "Can you complain anymore about gray days? Or, perhaps there is something else you could offer that might take the focus to something positive?" The Full Moon yesterday offered a perfect time to release any blocks of self-limiting beliefs that hold us back. I believe I have some last minute "stuff" to offer her to transform. I am grateful she's not on our calendar dates!
I then recalled the Teaching of Wisdom Keeper, the Clan Mother for this Moon cycle, that gray is "nonthreatening or neutral and represents friendship." This is probably why her medicine is with the stone beings; which are the keepers of the history of Earth and her wisdoms. She also teaches how to "honor the truth in all things." Now, that's something to consider, particularly in light of our current state of affairs in this country.
And her teaching that "snowflakes hold the web of life's lessons as it is woven by one of the Children of Earth . . . and when they fall to Earth Mother she receives them as the dreams of her children." What an outstanding teaching. She continues, "Each life form in Creation is a part of the Whole, but individually, each one sees life from her or his Sacred Point of View." Now that offers pause for each of us to consider. There is no "this or that," there is simply each being's way of maneauvering through this life experience.
Imagine if you will, on this very beautiful gray day, what dreams fell to earth yesterday that Mother received within her, to birth forth in the Spring. With that new perspective, perhaps we can use these nonthreatening, neutral days as an opportunity to examine that for which we have to be grateful. And, to help us pause and reflect with a friend about what sweet memories we have created and wish to experience more of in the future so they may be called up on the next gray day. That will no doubt bring some belly laughs and tears of joy that will fill the air with love and gratitude. Hope fuels our dreams and warm our hearts, if, we'll appreciate the gray days that keep us growing inward in order for spring to bring our dreams outward! It's all in our perspective.
