Equinox time – a time to let go

On Saturday, March 20th, 2021 will be Autumn equinox.

Today for a brief moment the entire globe will be in balance with 12 hours of day and 12 hours of light due to the tilt of the earth.   Let us try to use this energy to bring ourselves into balance, make sure you use this time to reflect and do some work on yourself.

A deep conversation with a close friend the other day sparked a reminder for myself, that we are a reflection of the universe that surrounds us, what takes place outside us must also take place within us. It is often a difficult process to face oneself much easier to project and externalize the issues.   Those who long for the light must first face the darkness within themselves.

Sow the correct seeds of intention, connect with nature and those you hold dear to you.  Do some inner reflection and take stock of yourself.  Do you notice any patterns? now is the time to realign and adjust accordingly.  Allow yourself to live more authentically, find your balance between the dark and the light.

Be aware and notice how the trees do not cling to their leaves.  It is about releasing the old to make way for the new.

Here are some simple hand tips to get the Zen family on their way to embrace this year’s equinox

1.Spring clean your mind

As we go through the year, we subconsciously pick up baggage that we don’t need. At best, it just clutters up your thoughts. At worst, it blocks you from receiving the things you actually would benefit from…Either way, removing that clutter is important to help you step forward, with your mind nicely organized and ready to receive the changes coming your way.

2 Change your home vibe

Sometimes tidying up and cleaning isn’t enough though.  Get rid of old furniture and things that are not useful of beautiful or spark joy.  Play some fun music. Dust out the spider webs, open up those windows and let some light in.  In order to make way for the new you have to push out the old.  Decluttering is a great way to make space for energy to enter your space.  Donate the stuff you are no longer using it may just make someone else’s day.

3. Be like Elsa and let it go…..

No matter how much cleaning you do, it’s all in vain if you don’t get real with yourself about the things that are no longer serving you. There’s no better time than just before one of the most potent pivotal points of the year to do this. Be brave and vulnerable with yourself. You owe it to yourself to stand in your truth.  From a relationship aspect letting go may not necessarily mean letting go of someone physically or emotionally, it could also mean have a difficult conversation and realigning expectations.

Get your self into balance that is the most important thing you can do for yourself.  Once you are in balance the world around you will start to pivot around your energy.
