In the past, this would be the time I create a detailed ceremonial ritual for our community. Yet, now I am surrounded by my sisters who share the responsibility of service. For this, IAM eternally grateful!
The Autumn Equinox is a meaningful time of year to honor the harvest. Whether that be a “real” harvest of the things planted in your garden or the harvest of efforts and intentions for your life path that you set earlier in the year.
Indigenous cultures recognized earth-based wisdom and understood that the four focal points of the year: the Winter Solstice, Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice, and Autumn Equinox; illuminated stages of an inner spiritual journey – a spiritual cycle that the individual takes within themselves.
Personally, I am celebrating the harvest of true friendship.
My life has been challenged by the deep desire for authentic connections. Which has led me into relationships that simply were not healthy, by creating the illusion of love.
Autumn Equinox is the time of year that we set up our internal space and make room for what’s to come in the next year. We create fertile soil for our greater visions to grow.
A favorite ritual of mine is to take the 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after the precise moment of the equinox to sit quietly on the ground in thoughtfulness and meditation and open my mind and my senses to the intelligence of nature all around. In this time spent in thoughtfulness around the moment of equal light and equal dark, I acknowledge my personal growth cycle and ask for harmony and balance to be the fertilizer in the soil of my life’s garden.
I pray that each one of you reading this message feels the support of those around you, in a way that brings joy to your heart.
I pray that this year, for Autumn Equinox, each one of you plants the seed of Sacred Union in a real way!
I pray that each one of you reading this message understands what true friendship means !!!!!
I encourage you to set aside time September 23 this year to acknowledge your relationships, life cycle and spiritual path. In doing so, you are honoring, not only your own growth and light within, but the ancient wisdom that has served our health and wellness for thousands of years.
Friendship : The ability to accept another without judgement and the desire to see an individual as they are…. in all forms of expression.
I pray that you witness your reflection as I stand firmly in my ability to BE AUTHENTIC.
Infinite Love – Infinite Light – Infinite Possibilities
