THIS is the worst combination for me.. I'm jetlagged and then there's a beautiful FULL moon.
I'm really sensitive to the Full Moon. I could actually feel this already a few days prior. And for me it just doesn't go together with a good night's sleep. I feel I haven't been sleeping at all since I got here. Perhaps 2-3 hrs. per night.. Normally I don't have too bad of a jetlag travelling east, but this time it has been really bad. I don't know about you - but the "older" I get the harder the jetlag get. I'm sure it has some kind of correlation with age.. ;)
This time I also forgot my melatonin at home. Normally I don't go anywhere without them or my other sleeping aids. When travelling I always carry my jetlag-survival-kit with me: My Eye mask, air plugs and melatonin.
After the third night of no sleep I had that ask the rest of the group at the retreat if someone had some kind of sleeping aid tablets. I was so tired at this point. And I was lucky. One of the ladies from New Zealand had. It's not melatonin but something similar with the same effect. The name of the product is interesting; Go Cherry Sleep and it's made of tart cherry. I really hope it works - at this point I'm ready to try almost anything.
...AND then we have the full moon. It was so beautiful last night. I think everything around the moon is so interesting and fascinating. I really believe in the power of the moon. This time it is Full Moon in Scorpio (..I read about this last night when I couldn't sleep). So what does it mean?
When the full moon is in Scorpio we can feel exhausted and/or very emotional (check). This full moon brought a lot of powerful energy and opportunities for different kind of changes (or acceptance to recent changes). The Scorpio energy is all about transformation and reaching higher levels of consciousness. But it can also be the opposite - reach a low level of consciousness. Whatever it will be - it will for sure leave a lasting impact. After the energy of this Full Moon starts to fade, we will feel a greater sense of understanding of the road ahead.
Interesting, right? Next full Moon will by the way bee June 9th - then it is Full Moon in Sagittarius. Let's come back then to what this means.
Go Cherry Sleep tablets from Go healthy
My favourite sleep mask from Cabeau. It's soft and keeps the light out. Travels with me all the time.
