Yesterday’s MindSpa Weekly Adventure, we headed to the Room for the Moon.
Another experience that I find tricky to describe.
We had two requests: some lunar imagery; and leaving things behind.
So off we went, on a journey that hadn’t been written before. We explored leaving things behind, in the past, where they belong. We looked at things in a different light, literally and metaphorically.
Then, we headed to the MindSpa and the Room for the Moon.
Inside, there were some ideas to contemplate, questions and insights, before bringing those experiences to bear on our own lives.
I can’t tell you the benefits, because they were personal to each of us. That’s kind of the point of an experience. You’ve got to be there to get it.
MindSpa Mini Meditations: Moon (1/3)
Language often offers us insight into what we’re doing internally.
In English we have the phrase ‘put something behind you’ (I don’t know if there are equivalents in other languages).
It means to get over something, stop being affected by it.
It might be a literal truth, or how we experience and describe the outcome. I think what’s important is figuring out what works for you.
If you were to think of a small something that’s been bothering you, where would you see it?
(It’s usually in front of us, though it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes, when things get a bit much, the problem can seem close and large – hence, choose something small 🙂
What happens if you place it way behind you?
Do you notice anything different?
MindSpa Mini Meditations: Moon (2/3)
Bright, vivid thoughts seem to affect us more.
The moon’s light is different, cooler, gives us more of a black-and-white experience of the world.
What happens when you experience thoughts in that moonlight?
For bonus points, what happens if you think of something in the moonlight and put it in the past*?

MindSpa Mini Meditations: Moon (3/3)
The moon has different ideas, concepts for each of us.
It could be distant, alone;
locked in a galactic dance with the Earth;
Light in the dark;
and many other ideas.
There are many belief systems rich in lore and symbology of the moon.
You’ll probably have your own ideas.
Pick one aspect of the moon, what it means …
… and imagine bringing this aspect into your life.
What do you notice?
What stands out? What distinctions do you make?
Do you get any insight, or have any questions?
