On Sunday, April 17th the full moon moves into Aries. The moon in Aries is said to light a fire in people. It is a time to make a fresh start, move fast, speak up, take initiative and honor independence.
A group that seems focused in taking initiative and bringing change to the world from the center of the heart is The Global Coherence Initiative.
"The Global Coherence Initiative is a science-based, co-creative project to unite people in heart-focused care and intention, to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace."
You can check out this organization at http://www.glcoherence.org/
In particular, on the full moon, this group is focusing efforts on Japan, Libya and the Ivory Coast. By sending love and intention in a focused group way, this organization works to bring light to the darkness and help enact positive change.

It seems lately as though the troubles in Japan and Libya have become "old news" and are no longer the focus for those of us that aren't experiencing the event first hand. For the average person, it can be hard find the balance between feeling compassion and providing some kind of support without becoming immersed, depressed and unable to lend anything tangible in the process. As the media coverage backs off, it becomes easy to ignore and forget. And yet, for many, that leaves a nagging sense of guilt and despair. If we know we are all connected, how do we help in meaningful ways?
The Global Coherence Initiative, in my opinion, provides a wonderful outlet for helping others across the world while still maintaining your own center and balance. This group is not about sending aid workers, or supplies. They don't ask for donations or money. Neither do they ask you to feel bad for those who are suffering. This group, in an amazing mix of science and spirituality, provides methods to connect and send love and compassion.
So if the full moon has you wanting to do something, make a change, and inspire others, check out the global coherence initiative and see if this feels right for you. In the process, you might find ways to make a positive difference in your own life.
