Under the Moon at Home

mooncarolbakerThanks to CSB for the amazing moon photo!

I awoke last night to the moon shining through the skylights in my home.  They were the most amazing, brilliant moonbeams which danced on the floor of my room.  I was infatuated with them and as I looked up, I realized how blessed I was to be so at peace in my life.  To understand the splendor of simply enjoying the feeling of inner peace.

I moved myself so that I was able to see the moon and have the moonbeams sparkling on my shoulders.  Illuminated by the presence of the moon, I spontaneously began to pray.  Words came unbidden to me as I clasped my hands together.  I prayed for the health and healing of loved ones and myself.  I prayed for peace within as well.  I prayed serenely for several minutes naming blessings and gifts for which I was incredibly grateful.

And when I was all through, I smiled.  For throughout the house, the neighborhood and my world in that moment was a sense of peacefulness, a fulfilled moment of appreciation, a breath of calm caught between the still of the night and the dew of the morning.  And I was there ~ I was present in that special moment.

It was as if nature, life, love and humanness all converged inside me for a moment.  I know it’s something that we hold already, but to experience it so profoundly was amazing.  A blessing, an a-ha moment to be cherished.

Have you ever had a special moment where you just feel that supreme inner peace settle into your body, your bones, your mind, your heart and your soul?  If you haven’t, you may want to try to see the moon tonight.  I hear it’s going to be spectacular!

Shine On!


P.S.  Moments like these are what I miss the most when I’m away from home.
