Moon Prayers


The full moon energy of the past couple of days has been extraordinary. Do you not also feel its intensity, dear Readers? I have not been able to sleep through the night as the moon has been waking and daring me to experience its silvery, mysterious powers.

During the past days I have heard stories from friends of death, illness (including a friend’s mother having a stroke), and high drama while travelling. And in the larger world, (although I am not following the usual horror stories in the media,) I did read about the astonishing fact that scientists tracking conditions in Greenland discovered that 97% of the ice melted during this past July. Of course we mustn’t forget the continuation of enormous solar flares which keep pelting us earthlings with more solar electromagnetic force than ever, for all we know. Anyone else out there feeling exhausted for no good reason lately?

La Luna shines down upon me from her lofty position in heaven as I write this tonight. I surrender to her loveliness and power. I am holding prayers in my heart for those whom I love and am concerned about this night. May they be well, be strengthened and healed from their infirmaries and regain precious balance. May Luna’s presence shine upon them with mercy and love. May we all keep carrying on and doing what we have come to this earth life to do. Gracefully.

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire


Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We’ll rise above these earthly cares

Please remember me
(Loreena McKennitt, Dante’s Prayer)

When we sing over the bones, we are calling the wild nature, the instinctive soul back, singing it alive again. To live with our wildness intact, is the greatest gift a woman can give herself. "It is the holy poetry and singing we are after." C.P. Estes

  1. Without the moon we would have nothing and be nothing – thank you for posting 🙂


  2. Yes, I have had trouble sleeping, too….wake up at 1AM, 4 AM , etc….very unusual for me. Yes, I feel the intensity….and am working om being centered in the midst (smile)…last night the moon was bright orange…..the energies are intense….and I expect that will just amplify in the coming weeks and months….hang on to your hat!(smile)


  3. Thank you for dropping around Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary Singingbones, SB,
    The Moon was certainly beautiful in her halo and yes many things happening in the month of July and August…
    I think none are immune to the energy changes…
    What we need to do is keep our awareness in the present, and bring around ourselves the positive and as hard as it is, try not to get caught up within others drama’s … especially the worlds which the media delights in delivering on our doorsteps and into our homes…
    My own advice would be to focus upon the type of world we would like to create.. and envision it and bring that feeling of love into your heart with gratitude … When we do this.. our days feel light and we find we start to go with the flow.. rather than fight the stream…

    Wishing you well and you have a very enlightening blog..
    Love and Light..
    Sue Dreamwalker


    • Thanks for your reply and advice, your words remind me of one of my best friends back in Wisconsin, who believes in a similar way to you. I’ll be back to your blog often for a little spiritual uplift…. blessings, SB
