Full Moon Dream Board: Harvest Moon

As I introduce my dream board for the Full October Harvest Moon, I am reminded to live fully.  As I have grown into a woman from a girl, I have regularly worked on the inner to help cultivate the woman I imagined wanting to become.  Nowadays, I ride the line of genuineness pretty closely.  But where I wish to grow is in the area of body acceptance.

The images below explore thoughts about beauty, age, roundness, acceptance, and self-expression regarding the body.  Some of the images have been with me for years. They called out as a reminder of where I have come from with my body, of the stories it holds, and the important work I still have to do to more fully heal.

This is a practice I have come back to time and again.  I call it The Body Practice.  And it has been valuable.  I work to find a balance between acceptance of the body as it is today and hope for health and vitality gained in the future.

Currently, my practice guides me to find peace with the food I put in my body and the thoughts and feelings I have regarding it.  I think it is also important to acknowledge the great gift my body is.  Through it, I experience the world.  It has been resilient.

At the core of The Body Practice is an enduring dedication to self-love and self-care.  It is a great medicine for the hurts of yesterday and for forgiveness of the judgement of today.  It is the ultimate way to make love. Only instead of reaching out to another, it demands reaching in and saving yourself.

This little picture of the fairy that I have altered is something I have carried around for years.  Regrettably, I don’t know the artist.  If someone is familiar with the work, please message me so that I can give credit where it is due.

The Full Moon Dream Board series is the brain child of Jamie Ridler.  Check her out.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I will go over and check my video to see what may be wrong. Have a Beautiful Day!~

  5. The words in your first few paragraphs resonate so strongly with me, I will use your advise to powerfully accept my body and mind, neither of which are as I imagined they would be when I was a girl. It’s great to be reminded of such strong aspirations shared by so many.

    Sending peace and light to you.

    I’m late with my comment but nevertheless: Your images speak with force as do your words, I can relate. Body image was something I worked through via art at college a number of years ago now. Result I’m in a better place mentally and physically!

    Thank you for sharing.
