As we approach the Equinox this week, the energies are supporting us to create balance within ourselves and in our world.
A time when we have equal night and day, it symbolises the light and dark coming together, and often represents the balance of the yin/yang and male/female energies. It is also a time of renewal and new beginnings.
This Equinox is about centering ourselves, connecting to our deeper true nature, and honouring our human physical self and all that it brings.
To appreciate the joys and also the sufferings, because it is through these that we can evolve and come to understand and appreciate ourselves and the world around us on a deeper level.
To appreciate the purpose of our journey, which is to come to know more about love and how we can contribute that to the lives of others and share love in our world.
To see how our experiences can be a catalyst for growth and to evolve; and to open to more self love, compassion and moving beyond self limitations.
To appreciate who we are and what we bring to the world – including all our gifts, talents, abilities.
To appreciate others and what they do for us; and to value the simple things in life that we may overlook or take for granted.
To really see the beauty and magnificence around us; animals, Nature, and all else that is in this material world…and for us to truly recognise how Life supports us.
As we look at both sides – the Light of our soul and the physicality of our Human self – with equal appreciation we can accept both. We can bring spirit and matter together in harmony and balance.
So as your week unfolds, take time to re-balance. Sit quietly, go within and ask:-
- What part of myself or my life, wants to come into balance?
- Where can I be more loving and accepting of myself?
- Where am I not loving and accepting others?
- What can I do to contribute to the world? What do I bring to the world?
- What is next? What are the action steps I can take and when?
It’s a time to reflect and to appreciate all you have, all your past and all that has brought you to this point in your life.
All obstacles, challenges or difficulties, are also an opportunity to go deeper into yourself and to shift focus – to know that you can respond from love and to create a new way of being and of doing.
All fear, hurt, anger, etc are human emotions that are a valid part of your life experience, but they are not the whole of you. Bring your love and appreciation to these parts of you, and align to your highest truth, deepest love, and authentic wisdom. In so doing you create more balance in our world.
Happy Equinox to All.
