Connecting to Mother Earth on this beautiful Autumnal Equinox day and whispering prayers to the wind. A time of reflection, facing the darkness and shadows within to set the stage for the inner preparation process of enlightenment and rebirth. Each season offers a great deal of wisdom on the spiritual journey and autumn is a season of transition bringing a deeper awareness of the continual cycle of dying and rising. On this day, I surrender my mask, die to my old self and release all things, habits, beliefs that I’m being guided to let go of to become who I’m supposed to be.
Standing on the threshold between what was and what will be I look back with reverence at all that I’ve accomplished, the blessings, the light, the dark, the tough lessons and look forward to all the new and beautiful adventures that will come and fill my heart.
Many traditions honor this celestial time with bonfires, drumming, dancing, meditation, prayers and offerings to Gaia. I love to spend time in nature reflecting on what I want to harvest for the spring ahead. If you listen, all of life has messages for you and I find most of my guidance from nature. As I sit and meditate, I make a list of all of my intentions for the future because if you never dream of a different life, I firmly believe you will be living the same life in the months and years to come.
As autumn energy moves in, these cosmic forces are bringing us closer to our spiritual purpose and aligning us with love and oneness. To bring these energies in so we can live in heaven while still on earth, the ascension of the human body is a key factor. In order to move past the denseness within and let the light in do some yoga, tai chi, walking meditations, sound healing or anything that moves energy around the physical body. Eat pure and clean food that is preferably vegetarian, drink herbal teas, take salt baths, brush the skin, add magnesium to your diet, get plenty of rest, breathe deeply and laugh often. Blessings to all 🙏
