As the equinox approaches for 2021 on the 20th of March, we have a three-day window of opportunity to find a sense of balance, most necessary as we try to navigate these new energies. I am always seeking guidance from nature and as an observer, I have found from personal experience the answers are all around us if we take the time to enter the stillness and honor these moments where greater clarity is gifted to the human honoring the old ways.
The time of the Equinox provides us with a time “Between worlds” a window through which we can perform special magick as we honor the turning of the wheel and the unseen world. This is one of two days when the earth will experience equal portions of light and dark. A powerful time to bring into balance inspiration with action, the merging of the heart and the mind, the balance of our male and female essence.
When old paradigms shift, and old structures break down as world views change, the adjustments we humans need to make is difficult in the process of clearing out the old expression. We are often thrown off balance and left confused and uncertain. The equinox offers us a time of emptying out so we can regather ancient wisdom and truth as the world experiences equal portions of shadow and light. A holy day that belongs to everyone gifted from the world of nature. The challenges of embracing anything new as our world begins to identity the new normal, is lessened if we purify our energy and regather. We must make room for new beliefs and new experiences.
I love to celebrate the ending of the day, watching the sunset as it always brings the promise of new beginnings when the sun returns. If we choose, we can recalibrate and share liminal experiences with the natural world. For those who are unfamiliar with the term liminal, it means a moment where the human stands at the threshold (or border) between one thing and another. The ”tween time” early in the morning when the sun is beginning to rise, night is ending and day has yet to begin or the evening when the light is passing into darkness but it is not quite night are the most magickal times. I have posted an equinox ritual for both the northern and southern hemisphere to assist you in celebrating this special time. CLICK HERE
In a five-year vibration, it is important that we focus on the five virtues of the Goddess: Hopefulness, compassion, gentleness, kindness and courage. If we practice a daily meditation to enter the stillness, it will prepare us for greater moments of activity that are coming. Take this time to set your intentions in motion and without effort you will raise your vibrational frequency to match the frequency of what you desire. Energy builds in the seed that has been gestating within us, and with little effort other than commitment and focused intention miracles will happen.
What the magickal river shared with me was to lose myself in her flow. She had much to share as I quietly listened to her guidance and invoked the spirit of the river goddess. “Be carried away in the natural rhythm of all you are wishing to create. Take away all expectation of the timing and allow yourself to co-create with the natural world. Slow down, allow all your troubles and worries to be washed away in the flow.”
At the river’s edge we can gather insight and new ideas from the vast field of information she holds within. You can enter the flow anytime you are willing to release your expectations. There are no shortcuts on this journey we have chosen. There are days that the river will flow with intensity and you will feel her power, other days she will appear to be still to nurture your soul. Be committed and know that the greatest wisdom comes when we keep learning from the natural world.
If you are called by the ancestral red stone elders of Sedona, and would like to experience a deeper connection with a personal journey of discovery, please contact me at [email protected]. April and May are magickal months to experience the beauty as the weather is perfect and life is blossoming. I offer one day experiences, two days, weekends, or a five day retreat to really immerse into the magick and healing of the natural world. I can also create a special and unique experience for a couple wishing to rekindle the spark in their relationship or an intimate group experience for friends wanting to explore the magick together in sacred ceremony.
I am available for private sessions to assist one in navigating these times of uncertainty and change. CLICK HERE for more information.
