Love & Moonlight,
PS. This is to a night of ignition. The fire within my heart is a blaze.
PSS. Loving you Lacey and Kim… ❤
This. From our last sunset at the house on Ke Ike Beach on the North Shore of Oahu. It sums up everything about life. I felt like a mermaid. It felt like home. This trip reminded me of how much I missed this place. It made me want to do risky things. I almost didn’t come home.
Thinking. Dreaming. Thinking. This place shaped me into the woman I am today. This was where I blossomed into a young lady. This is where I want to be.
There are times when I wished I never moved from Hawaii… but I’m certain of how things play out… I’m certain of God and his plan. He wasn’t kidding when he brought my best friend Jamie to me… he knew that we would be life long friends… he knew that I needed to have my girls, my career, and placed me where I needed to be when I needed to be to have them… same with her, she met the love of her life at the perfect time… and yet we found ourselves again in a place where we grew up… best friends in a place of awakening… if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have been able to experience this past week… or watch her get married… timing is everything.
What I’ve learned about myself this past week is how much I missed that Mighty Mama of an ocean… I missed floating around and getting salty and feeling free… there really are no words…
What I felt burning in my soul was this desire to come back… permanently… burning like the fire sign Aries. This last sunset was a burning flame that set me on fire.. got me thinking hard about moving…
Could I do it? Would it be possible? I think I could retire here. Could I move sooner? The possibilities…
For now, at this last Quarter Moon phase, I’m grateful for what I got to experience…
Love & Moonlight,
Kelly, the mermaid…
PS. I have sooooooo many photos to share, but for now…just this one…

New Moon in Aries.
Tonight I’d like to share two favorite Yukti Sutra verses from The Radiance Sutras book.
Enter these turning points,
Where the rhythms of life transform
Into each other.
Breath flows in, filling, filling,
In this moment, drink eternity.
Breath flows out, emptying, emptying,
Offering itself to infinity.
Cherishing these moments,
Mind dissolves into heart,
Heart dissolves into space,
Body becomes a vibrating field,
Pulsating between fullness and emptiness.
At the end of the exhale,
Breath surrenders to quietude.
For a moment you hang in the balance –
In the fertile spaciousness
That is the source of breath.
At the end of the inhale,
Filled with the song of breath,
There is a moment when you are simply
Holding the tender mystery.
In these interludes,
Experience opens into exquisite vastness
With no beginning and no end.
Embrace this infinity without reservation.
You are its vessel.
-Yukti Verses 3 & 4, The Radiance Sutras, by Lorin Roche, PhD
These two verses are so beautiful to me…when I think of the breath I am reminded of just how powerful the breath really is. It is the life force. It has power. And you can use it to kindle the fire within you.
ON TO THE MOON:
When I think of Aries…I think of FIRE and the internal flame. We all have one. Burning. Some days brighter than others….but always there. When Aries is in the mix I like to return my thoughts to my inner flame…what kindles it? What flames it? At this new moon I’ll be checking into what makes my fire burn bright….and do that. And maybe do some fire breath pranayama to get my internal flame roaring.
SET AN INTENTION:
This lunar cycle I’ll be tuning into what flames my fire…which is artwork, yoga, and writing. I intend to get a start on creating a routine for my creative outlets. I really would love to start making artwork again…be more diligent with my yoga and journaling/blogging…time to set my butt on fire like the Aries and get stuff done!
Love & Moonlight,
Love & Moonlight,
PS. LAST QUARTER MOON LAST NIGHT AND TONIGHT. Aries where you at! FIRE, FIRE, FIRE….if you are feeling on fire…you got this. With that fiery Aries…tAke those fire embers and read the light. Sit with it and be grateful for that warmth and fire within you!
Last Quarter Moon in Aries Tonight…
Ah…the last stage of working with the four major moon phases. This is the time to really sit down and reflect. Really think about how far you’ve come…or how much more time it will take to accomplish the goal you set at a new moon. This is another (second) half moon and half point.
If you planned to complete your goal in one complete moon cycle…meaning…you set the goal at the new moon, checked in at the first quarter, accomplished by the full moon…then now is the time to be thankful that you did it. Be grateful. Say HELL YEAH!
If you are still working on your goal (for example you wanted to complete something in three full moons) then now is a time to check back in with yourself. Reflect on your progress and think about the next step. At the new moon your can set the next step during that phase to get it done.
Most importantly this is a time to reflect. Look inward. Be thankful for the things that have come into your life and what is now leaving your life. Think about what you want to accomplish…WRITE IT ALLLLL DOWN. Working with the moon is great when it is accompanied with a journal! You’ll start to see patterns and it’s also a stress reliever!
Now to the nitty gritty…the Moon is in Aries tonight…so you may feel a bit gung-ho and revved up! Aries is a VERY assertive and sometimes aggressive sign…The RAM…a fire sign…a VERY “I AM” sign…COURAGE comes to mind…listen to that intense intuition…act on it…DO IT! (With carefulness not to get too hasty and careless). If you feel the need to clean out the fridge DO IT…and then be thankful that you did…because after all YOU WANTED TO DO IT. Don’t take yourself for granted…and think about all the good things that have come into your life by PAYING ATTENTION to your own needs and wants…
If you are working through some problems…ACKNOWLEDGE them…ACCEPT them for what they are…and then LET THAT FEELING GO! Ask yourself…is this helping me? If it isn’t…and there is nothing that can be done…accept it for what it is AND THEN LET GO AND LET GOD…it may not make the feeling go over night…but it’s the first step in moving on…two good tips for letting something go and making a promise to yourself to move on…
ONE: Write it allllllll out on a piece of paper…every bit of it…DO NOT DOWNPLAY YOURSELF OR BLAME YOURSELF…shit happens. Learn from it. When you’ve written it all down and you are ready to let it go…BURN IT! (Safely) BURN IT…Especially TONIGHT! I mean….the Moon is in Aries tonight…and Aries is a FIRE SIGN. Burn it and imagine it disintegrating…you don’t need it…LET GO AND LET GOD.
TWO: Or…write that bad feeling or thought on a rock and THROW IT INTO A LAKE OR THE SEA OR POND OR ANY BODY OF WATER….let it sink to the bottom…because you DON’T need it anymore…LET GO AND LET GOD.
To round off the night…if you are just happy…BE HAPPY…
Remember the Law of Attraction…if you think happy…you get happy…
AND for your personal pleasure…a GREAT Message from Shia LaBeouf!
