Balanced Mind = Balanced Life
This week's New Moon in Libra teaches vital lessons on how to restore the balance that may have been lost while seeking one's purpose. In balancing our diet, work, play, rest, exercise, hobbies, and relationships, we are able to feel a better sense of BEing on all levels. Radiating Light both guides us toward Light, but also has the power to attract darkness. As we seek more harmonious ways of living, sometimes the actions we take can actually lead us to more challenges. In our individual roles as people in a community, there is a balance between private life and public life. Finding the balance between being an individual and working with others is a part of living with healthy boundaries. Time alone to contemplate, meditate, and assimilate is crucial as a spiritual being, and working in a group or part of a community is a big part of feeling a sense of belonging to something greater. Whatever the choices are, life is a paradox and the opposite must also be true. This is why balancing our "opposites" is so important. When there is too much or too little energy in one particular area of our lives, that imbalance trickles into other areas of our lives. Energy seeks harmony, so when there is lack in one area, we can find excess in another area.
Stress is taxing on all levels of the being. When we have a lot of stress in our lives, that imbalance starts the domino-effect to other areas of our lives. This New Moon in Libra asks us to look at those areas of imbalance, and find new and creative solutions to addressing them directly. By taking an honest and compassionate look at our attitudes, actions, behaviors, and habits, we can be creators of positive change. It is a new season to Fall in Love with ourselves, and a New Moon to plant that Love seed deep inside the heart to grow into a great tree of living blessings. If we are able to create imbalance so easily, then we are also able to create harmony just as easily. The most important steps come in awareness and positive action. The more we can see what has shifted out of balance on the inside, the more clear it is to see that imbalance working its way to the outer reality. Positive action away from suffering and toward self-Love will attract more positive results in growth and expansion.
