“To put it simply, a buck moon is a full moon that happens in July. Its name derives from the bucks or male deer whose antlers grow at its peak during this time. Some say that it was the Native Americans that bestowed this name to the July full moon. This is the time when sightings of the aforementioned bucks become all the more abundant. It also signals that the mating season of deer is about to commence.” angelicalbalance.com
Tonight, July 13, 2022, we will launch my new book, “What Do I Need to KNOW? 101 Thoughts That Changed My Life.” The synchronicity of it occurring on the night of the full Buck Moon means much to me. I didn’t plan it, but obviously I did on some plane of consciousness.
The Buck is growing its antlers and ready to mate. I am growing into the writer that I have always been and ready to meet with others, share my talents and connect community. I am growing and showing my antlers of creativity and ready to be recognized as a writing talent. I am ready to put the philosophy I hold dear out into the world as I experience it.
I am not becoming a writer tonight. I have written from the time I was a little girl. I put my pen to paper working out the problems in my life and creating fantasy to help me through. I only wished to find the solution and the joy in my experiences. I was idyllic in thinking and writing about always having a happy ending.
I believe that is what this new book is about. It is about taking what is happening in our lives and finding the happy ending by looking through the experience to a higher perspective. It is about seeing what is, but expecting a greater outplay of all the part of the experience. It is done unto us as we perceive and believe.
As I stand like a buck in an open field of opportunity today, I get to choose how this story called my writing life will play out. I get to focus on going past the limitations I have placed on myself. The reading in the Science of Mind this morning was a perfect anchoring for me: “I expect, fully and emphatically, the answer to my prayer today. Right now, do I possess the thing I so greatly desire. I remove my fear of lack and negation, for it is the only barrier which stands in the way of my experience of good. I alone can remove it, and I do remove it now.” (293 SOM)
One might ask, why is this so important to me? It is so important because it is a moment in my own spiritual evolution where I get to prove to myself that I can co-create the life I desire with that Power within me that knows no limitation and only wishes to express itself through me. I get to turn up the volume as high as I want.
I am grateful to be able to experience tonight and this launch of me. I am grateful to be an example to those who might have a hidden genius within them that has been trapped and longs to finally express itself.
To all of us, let us grow our antlers. We do not have to wait until next July and the next Buck Moon. Today is the day. The world needs us, but more importantly, we need us.
Love and Aloha,
