moon gazing, a simple and effective mindfulness practice

Written by Alauna Whelan


One of my favorite mindfulness activities is being in nature. I walk my kids to and from school every day.

Taking in the fresh air, sights, and sounds make me feel grounded and centered. It clears my head and also lets me take in the change of the seasons. Noticing the days lightening or darkening, the birds chirping, and the beautiful prairie skyline make me feel connected to something greater than myself.

It's been bitterly cold here on the prairies this past week. Still the boys and I walked each day. Today, the full moon in Leo accompanied me on my walk home. She was beautiful, luminous, full, and resting just above the horizon.

I love gazing at the moon. Witnessing how she ebbs and flows, waxes and wanes, is a reminder to me to honor my own rhythms. It's a gentle nudge and representation that nothing is ever static.

I've been an avid moon worshipper and gazer since the birth of my first son over 11 years ago. It was motherhood that initiated me into the moon mysteries. Her wonder never ceases to amaze me. I never tire of looking up at her and feeling a deep sense of comfort.

I live my life in alignment with her cycles and wisdom. Honoring the peaks and valleys of my own energy flow each month. I plan my business activities around the lunar cycle. I even send out emails with each lunar cycle so that my customers can experience a bit of moon magick and wisdom themselves.
