This Sunday marks the autumn equinox, a moment in which the length of day is equal to the length of night. This is an auspicious time to meditate on balance in our lives, and particularly the balance between our Infinite Spirit and Finite Body.
How do we nourish our spirit while also taking good care of our bodies, homes, and families? How do we find time to meditate, journal, and stretch while also tending to the laundry, groceries, and cleaning? How do we make choices based on our gut wisdom while also receiving the support of the clear-thinking mind?
In Chinese medicine, the autumn season relates to those precious gems hidden right below the surface of our waking consciousness. Intuitive instincts, inner knowing, and animal wit--these are the tools we all have that guide us in flowing with life's currents while also staying anchored into our inner peace.
If you've got a few minutes on your own this Sunday (or some time in the next few days), light a candle, connect with your body, connect with your spirit, and set an intention as to how you wish to experience autumn.
And if you're free Sunday evening, join me for a group meditation on autumn, a setting of intentions, and a practical yet magical and playful game of oracle cards to draw on the wisdom within!
