We just experienced a full moon. This one is known as The Harvest Moon. One interpretation of its importance is that it is a time when things in our life come to fruition. So, full moons are often times when intentions and hard work seem to pay off by changes that come to be felt, or known by us.
Around full moon time I am often awake for several hours in the middle of the night. I am restless, and sometimes very creative ideas flow in to my mind. So, I have learned to go with the flow during full moon weeks. I have written essays or stories, painted, or played flute.

I try and manage all this as best I can with meditations, sound energy practices and journaling. It is not an easy time, but the amazing thing which helps me keep going with flow of it, is that there is often a gift that is given after it is all over--a new writing, a great new insight, a revelation
