This morning, the day of the full moon in December 2013, I woke up with the thought that it is a really good time to send Reiki for being able to connect more deeply with my truth. There was an awareness that it will help me to be at peace and help me to express myself with love and compassion for self and others.

The Reiki self treatment that followed this Reiki sending felt very deep and powerful.

At times, during the last few days, it has felt like old issues have been resurfacing – issues that I thought I had worked through. It felt very clear today that when I thought I had worked through some issues, I was planting seeds. And these seeds were now growing deeper roots.

Approaching the full moon, our emotions can feel quite unsettled. Perhaps the stormy feelings we experience help bring more clarity. Just as storms can help trees grow stronger roots, the turbulence in our emotions that we may experience approaching a full moon help give us strength.

It seems like the time this month is about consolidation – bringing together all that has been happening in our lives. At this moment it feels really good to be in sync with the sun and the moon, the stars and the planets.

Later in the day I discovered an essay by Rabindranath Tagore on ‘Soul Consciousness’. The essay is rather long. However while reading it, I suddenly realised that it was helping me appreciate more deeply the value of knowing my truth and how it connects with my soul, my spirit. I feel so grateful to have rediscovered the writings of Tagore – today of all days.
