Hello PEMS People,
On April 21st we had our first mini moon or Pink moon of the year. A term used to describe the quality of the moon and its effect on the PEMS of all living things. The pink moon is a reference to the moon being the furthest away from the Earth then any other moon in the calendar year. According to the farmers almanac it is also known as the sprouting grass moon, egg moon and the fish moon. Native Americans, who lived in harmony with the land, learned tricks or DIY hacks from living each day in deep observation of Nature. Imagine, you are living on the plains in a tee pee and your life rotates around the seasons, the sun, moon and stars. As each new moon rose and fell, swelling into a bright white egg and then disappearing to blackness, you are left with signs from Nature. Guideposts on your way through life….If you are observant enough to recognize them.
These signs returned every 12 moons, like clockwork. They became the backbone to their planting and harvesting schedules, it dictated their nomadic lives forcing them to remember and teach future generations. Each one of these tools laid the course, literally, for their lives. These folks truly knew what conscious, sustainable and beautiful really meant. As modern PEMS aware people, we must remember this knowledge from our ancestors. We can do this with mindful reflection. All full moons offer a time for DEEP SELF REFLECTION. Combine this with the qualities of April, we are hit emotionally with a super whammy.
How can you utilize the power of deep self reflection, sprouting seeds and Earth Day? Well for me and other sensitive PEMS people, getting your hands in the dirt, the Earth will nourish your seeds so you too can sprout your pink flowers and shine even in the face of adversity. This year our huge swings from 78 to 15 degree weather is pulling peoples PEMS out of balance. This is even more intense then in previous years due to the huge vibrational shifts that are happening on the Earth at this time. We are being called home. Remembering what was forgotten and finding the core of why we are conscious beings living on this planet. I feel this is because we are getting so disconnected from our roots in Nature. This is why I want to share one of the most powerful earth exercises I learned early on from my mentors.
I have some tools below for you to work with the HEART OF A TREE to get your PEMS re-connected to the heart of nature.
The moon, the timing and all the PEMS shake up is a beautiful metaphor for the shadow side of the month of April or color yellow. Ie complementary colors are violet and indigo. The moon is pink to sooth all that huge shake up from the first part of the month and yellows massive amount of clarity and boundary energy. All pushing to the culmination of release. Sometimes in the way of an explosion of upward and outward energy. See my previous post on how to work with these duelistic qualities of the color of yellow.
What are you changing in your life to best serve your needs? What part of your shadow needs to be illuminated for a reflective glance?
I have a large list that I’m implementing with the full moon. What does not serve, what drains you, what is leeching your soul dry…will all come to a head within the next 24 hours. Stay in your PEMS and take action to remedy that which does not serve.
This is one of those months where these big momentous shifts in energy and vitality create long lasting change. Shake ups and upheavals are common in April and with this emotional child re-connection moon it will be even more powerful then previous Aprils. This is the month where, in the past, I purge most of the things that are causing my PEMS dysfunction. It is usually not pleasant and it is very difficult as it requires work to follow through and keep those boundaries strong. This is a month of relationships beginning and some ending. The great month of life and death. Beginning and ending cycles.
This moon mirror reflection can create changes in perception and health as we hold on to that does not serve our PEMS. This type of dysfunction leads to more illness and less vitality. All things that set up the seed to fail to thrive. If we embrace the positive uplifting, joyful and vivacious qualities of April and the Pink Moon we can solidify the foundation that we created with our Nature and PEMS re-connection. We are the seed our PEMS our beautiful messy PEMS. Love your system and it will show you the path to cleansing clarity.
I like to use the heart core tree connection exercise, to get clarity from the heart of nature. As a sensitive soul, I had always heard whispers from the tree’s, even when I was a very young child. I would tell the Pine trees my secrets and they would talk to me about reconnecting to Nature to solve these problems. I would tell a pine in Jefferson County and one at the far end of the state would know my secrets. This fascinated me, as a young one who grew up camping and 4 wheeling with my mother in the Rocky Mountains. It fascinates and intrigues me more as a scientist and conscious PEMS person. How can one tree, a supposed single organism, act like one and the whole at the same time? This speaks to me of an interconnected web bridging the gap between each individual tree. It allows them to function as an individual and as a conscious group unit. It is synonymous to the way I understand biochemistry and physics.

I was thoroughly immersed in this delicious thing called Nature. However, this Nature is denied to many souls across the planet…… But it does not have to be this way. We can bring Nature into the Urban environment through mindful re-connection with the Nature that is already around you. It will not be the same high resonance vibration that a wild untouched pristine piece of Nature, but it will be exactly what you need to support the turmoil of this moon, color and month. I invite you to keep your eyes and heart open for the tree that calls to you. That intrigues you…that pulls you in and wraps in its heartcore embrace.
Connect to the HEARTCORE of a Tree:
- Search out a tree that is calling you. Perhaps it looks interesting or is brighter then the other trees around you.
- Go and sit near the tree with your head and spine resting along the trunk. Get comfortable in your sitting position and your touch with the tree. If you are uncomfortable, move around the tree trunk until you find the perfect spot for you two to connect.
- Imagine going into the heart or the heart core of the tree with your minds eye. What do your senses
- Imagine your heart space uplifting and opening in response to the trees heart.
- Allow the two hearts to connect and start to exchange resources.
- You will send the trees heart all that is good and nourishing from you to the tree.
- You will receive the same in return from the tree.
- Both with give what they can and take what they need without injury to either system. This is the highly conscious Nature that is re-connecting your PEMS to the truth and the heart of Nature herself.
- Allow yourself to sit and go deep with the Heart Core of the tree. This usually lasts about 10-30 minutes. The longer you spend with the tree the more depleted you are. This is a reminder from Nature to do this more frequently. Your PEMS will love you dearly for your mindful attention to re-connection.
