Stopping by for a quickish celebration of yesness this day of Equinox sacredness!
Today is super special on many levels; fall Equinox is the time of reflection, renewal, harvest and setting our sights on new quests. This particular Equinox is the day that Mercury goes direct; retrograde Mercury happens 3-4 times a year and, like gravity, is a force in nature that has an effect on things like communications and new plans. These recurring phases ask us to spend time in reflection and really all things ‘re’ ~ review, reevaluate, redo, rethink, repair, renew … You get the idea! Mercury goes retrograde again this year December 19th ~ January 8th if you want to plan ahead to be with these renewable energies!
Today! Mercury goes direct freeing up the energies of moving forward with new ideas and plans. Our Creator gave us such a vast amount of energies, resources, and tools to co-create our lives! And as we contemplate and co-create, so it is we can tap into whatever information and inspiration that help us with our maps and paths. This is the 266th day of 2016 with 100 days left in the year so a perfect milestone to take stock and measurement of where we are and where we want to be!Yes, this Equinox day is also the day that marks 100 days left in Leap Year 2016 which has been a 9 year of completions. 2017 will be a #1 year of new beginnings. (Check out Numerology!) SO! All of this adds up to some powerful energy to take stock of our life harvest and see what we can tend to or do in these last few months of the year. Sitting in the silence listening to our divine wisdom is a perfect way to begin … I heard it said today by April Olas on the You Wealth Revolution that “Contemplation is Creation.” (You Wealth just started their 12 season and these transformational speakers will raise your vibrations ~ guaranteed!) Divine Science lists contemplation as one of the 7 Transformational Tools stating that, “… Reading spiritual/religious texts, taking in nature, listening to music are all acts of contemplation.” We all know the ancient advice of Socretes, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” While it sounds so harsh, it is only through self reflection and contemplation that we look into the sub conscious programming that can (and does!) so easily run our lives. There are so many transformational tools opening up to mass consciousness … like the quantum field I heard Olas speak of today. So! This moment of balance is really about the reminder that we can always create new beginnings. Yes, we can! And yes we do!
Whatever Transformational Tools you may choose, none are so powerful than sheer gratitude ~ no matter the deets of your year or life, behold and breathe in your blessings NOW! This Fall Equinox with all it’s powerful energies of year 9 completions and new year beckonings ahead, I am focused on Harvesting Happiness … being in that harmonic way of being happy for no reason and happy for every reason with appreciation as my ThanksLiving way of being. Again to quote an ancient, Aristotle said, “Happiness depends on ourselves.” And “The energy of the mind is the essence of life.”
I wrap up this sacred salutation with a reminder for all of us to caress our awareness with tenderness … to Love ourselves and each other deeply as we contemplate and co-create. I am definitely renewing my vows on my massive To Do’s of the year ~ like the ongoing publications and clarifications of my Laurie StorEBooks! ~ Yet! I am tempering the To Do’s and Ta Da’s with tolerance and tenderness ~ whatever doesn’t get done before January 1st has 365 days awaiting in 2017! I am ever so grateful for Transformational Tools … forwards and backwards … ABC … CBA … 100 Days left in this Leap Year, and YOU! Infinitely grateful for you balancing a mindful moment with me. If you can, join us this Sunday the 25th from 2:00-5:00 at Lake Tabaeud for a Creative Spirit Families Equinox PlayShop: Harvesting Happiness! We’ll share family, friendship, and community with a Transformational Treasure Hunt, music, and creativity! Wishing you so much Appreciation Activation, Breathing Believing, and Contemplation Co-Creation. Namaste, Love!
