Full Moon Dreamboards - "HOW WOULD I LIKE TO SHINE?" - September 4, 2009



My dreamboard this month is very simple. ONE image...one image only. NO words...cause the words just pop into my mind.

I have always been naturally drawn to images/creations/artwork of the sun and moon. I have often wondered why that is. When Jamie asked us how we would like to shine for this month's full moon dreamboard it got me to thinking.

This month's moon is about saying goodbye to the summer season...and hello to the harvest....and fall. It is the full corn moon and sometimes also known as the harvest moon.

I think an image of the sun came up for me again....ironic as it is since I am doing a MOON dreamboard....because of the question Jamie posed to us.

I WANT TO SHINE LIKE THE SUN!!! I want all the hidden parts of me that I have buried under covers for so long to BURST out like rays of the sun and shine for all to see. I want to reflect my light out into the world like sunbeams......filled with warmth and love and nurturing....energy.....I want the real me to finally be allowed to COME OUT AND BE SEEN.

Faces and images of the sun to Native Americans means:

# Sun - Earth Guardian in Day, Healing Energy
# Sun Face - Giver of life, warmth, growth, goodness.
# Sun Rays - Constancy.

I find this so appropriate of how I feel when I look at the sun....or feel its warmth.....or am drawn to another sun creation. It heals me.....gives me warmth and energy......gives life.....it is constant. Filled with goodness and growth!

SO I want to SHINE LIKE THE SUN!!!!

Melinda, This is a beautiful picture that I am going to steal... just right out.

Brightest blessings may you always shine in all the manners of the Sun!

I smiled when I saw this - I've always had an affinity for Suns and Moons as well :) And years ago when my Sufi teacher 'gave' me my name, Shamsi - I knew it was right because it means "Sunshine or Sunny" :)
