Musings from the Moon, 180 pages of prose and illustrations inspiring self-love and healing by Jenna Ramondo.
' Take a deep breath in... and lay down all that hurts you. It is time now, dear one, to put it down. To free yourself from the illusion that you need to be more to become yourself.'
' Life just flows when your heart knows that it's safe inside your chest'.
' If the universe can make the sun shine and the moon glow... trust it can do the same for you'.
' What do you want from life? I just want to be free and to seek anything that warms my heart and gives me the feeling of falling in love'.
' There are no parts of ourselves that need to be hidden. There are no parts of ourselves that we need to be rid of. There is not a single piece of you, no matter how deep and dark and terrifying that isn't worthy of being embodied. The entirety of you is welcome'
' I started to realise that if I wanted that beauty and wonder to fall out of my fingertips then I had to feel it first... and to feel it I had to blindly hand over every fear and crippling doubt in exchange for such magic.'
' The sun has your hand, the moon has your back.'
'You don’t have to try to believe in magic. Put your hand over your heart. Can’t you feel that? If that’s not magic, I don’t know what is.'
A note from the Author:
My debut book, Musings from the Moon is a collection of prose and illustrations that have unravelled in my journal over the last six years.
Writing and drawing has been a way of helping me to discover the mysteries of my inner world and through the aches, has shown me more magical moments than I ever could have imagined. I hope these pages remind you to soften, to lay down all that hurts you and to feel your completeness.
You are magic,
Soft cover with gold foil detailing.
180 pages of prose and illustrations.
Made ethically and with love.
