Let’s begin by saying that we believe little in life happens by chance. The experiences we are part of, the journeys we embark on are not random, but instead, cosmically designed. So too was the creation of Moonlit, when two Moon sisters and fellow yoga teachers realized that they were both listening and attuning into the same rhythm, swaying to the same sweet song of our Universe.
At first, it was simply funny; sharing aligned pieces of wisdom, teaching very similar yoga sequences, speaking within the same orbit. Over tea at Alee’s studio, they would chat about how affecting and empowering they felt this rhythm to be. For them, Mother Nature’s cycles and especially the movement of the Moon liberated them from society’s clock, illuminated their own internal movement and pole vaulted them into their continual transformation.
Over time, these “tea gatherings” gained more beautiful voices; other brothers and sisters who were just as interested in how they, too, could use the cycles of nature and the energies we all shift through to bring forth great changes in their individual lives. Alee and Allison began asking within their wider circles of family and friends their thoughts on tuning into the cycles of nature, ceremony and astrology itself. They began hosting and partaking in Moon Circles: gathering, questioning, feeling, releasing, connecting and manifesting together as tribe. In these experiences, they gained the understanding that while the majority of people were interested in life lived in ceremony, most found the plethora of information out there difficult to sort, time consuming to understand, and unapproachable to the modern being.
That is when Alee and Allison began asking themselves, “What if? What if they could find a way to share this powerful information in an approachable way? What if more and more people returned to our universe’s natural rhythms? What if we could all dance this divine movement together? What if we all realized that WE, ourselves, hold the power to create the life of our dreams? What if we worked with the cycles and rhythms we’re gifted instead of forcing ourselves against them? What if we UNDERSTOOD?”
The answer, they soon realized, was too big and too beautiful to keep to themselves. A dream, some may say. The answer to so many questions, the answer to so many “if’s,” was a human kind that lived liberated, illuminated and transformed into the highest version of themselves. Imagine that? A world in which every being is living at their greatest capacity, confident in their unique truth, and in service to the greater good. What a beautiful world that would be!
As they contemplated the logistics of such a big idea, the answer of format came simply- an APP. Let’s face it, we are on our phones a good portion of our lives. The little tiny devices are part of society’s built in clock. So, the pair thought, that if people are going to be tuned in to their phones anyway, how magical would it be to give them this powerful knowledge in a space they always have instant access to.
And so, Moonlit was born.
