Autumn Equinox @ 15.30
@ 15.30 T.O.D.A.Y
It seems too fast for summer to have come to an end and already for Autumn Equinox to be here but today is that day!
"A moment of cosmic equanimity" - Gaia.com
The day to celebrate the almost equal day and night. A time to reflect on all that has happened in 2020 so far. With that comes a process of slowing down and drawing inwards.
It is a time where you can turn into the RHYTHM of the Earth, the natural change in light, the surrendering of the plants and nature letting go of its leaves and following natural cycle of life and death.
So today I choose to begin the journey of letting go, letting go the sadness that summer is ending, letting go of holding onto the light and I choose to bring my attention once again to that light that shines inside.
I choose to reignite my practices that always help look a little deeper at my patterns of behaviour, thinking and I choose to keep the Light over the dark in my heart. Like the earth, I will use this time to regenerate, conscious eating, breathing and being with more attention and focus.
I look forward to Autumn, thinking of the warming foods, woolly jumpers, forest walks, mantra evenings and grounding practices.
Whats your favourite practices, foods and things to stay healthy and well?
Have you been able to find your own Rhythm?
Do you feel in balance or looking forward to slowing down, checking in and finding your place of homeostasis?
Yoga, breath work, mantra, meditation, self care routines and rituals will all help you come back home to your self, to feel more peace and become more grounded and rooted no matter if the world is going wild around you.
Take time for yourself in your day, maybe just to breath for a few minutes, or be still. 99% of the time you will always feel better.
Have a great start to Autumn.
All my love Helen x
Heres a great mantra to chant for this time of year.
