Today we honor the Fall Equinox, a time of "equal day, equal night," balance of light and dark, implying a natural harmony and equilibrium. It is a time for reflection, releasing that which no longer serves and allowing in the new.
On Tuesday, the New Moon in Virgo ushered in this powerful feeling of renewal and new possibilities. I have felt a tangible shift in the collective energy that is being reflected in the conversations and activities happening around me. I find it interesting that there is such external chaos when I look at the news, the weather and the shaking-up that is happening on our planet. And yet, inside I feel steadier, calmer, and more centered than I have in a long time. I believe this new space I am in comes from the deep energetic cleansing that I went through last week.
Cleansing - "Purifying; a process or period of time during which a person attempts to rid the body of substances (energy) regarded as toxic or unhealthy..."
This morning on my run, the song Circle of Life from The Lion King played on my shuffle, and I sang along (a bit breathlessly!) with these beautiful, timeless lyrics:
"From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the Sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done...
Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars...
In the circle of life, It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith, It's the band of hope
Till we find our place, On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life"
"Finding our place on the path unwinding" - yes, it is such a journey. And this "circle of life" - birth, life, death, rebirth - guides us along in our journeys, playing out visually and beautifully in nature around us each year. Here in the Midwest, we are enjoying the colorful display of Mama Gaia as the leaves on the trees move from green to yellow to orange to red as they drop to the ground. These seasons changing are the external signal to our bodies that it is time to cleanse - to internally release the toxins that have been stored over the summer months, as we prepare to go inward and hibernate a bit more for the winter.
A cleanse or detox is typically addressed at the physical level, through our bodies. In my healing work, I know that everything that happens in our bodies comes from the way that energy is moving (well or not so well!) through the physical form. Dropping into the deeper level of healing by addressing the energetic toxins (blocks, old limitations, beliefs that no longer serve) is that much more powerful of a cleansing process.
Mind Body Green weaves the physical and spiritual together beautifully with this, "If you're living among us in in this increasingly toxic world, then it's probably a good idea to do a cleanse once or twice a year. Doing a detox is like hitting a reset button. ... The unexpected and awesome benefits of a (body) cleanse are: a renewed ability to cope with stress; emotional release; a realization or epiphany; an increase in your vibrational frequency; and deeper consciousness."
Absolutely! And feel how much richer these benefits become when we put our focused attention on cleansing our energy bodies!
It is from this empowering place of providing support for cleansing at the deeper, energetic, individual level that I am offering an Autumn Energy Cleanse.
We all wear many hats in our roles as coaches, healers, wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, students, neighbors, daughters, sons... and the energy that we bring into each of those spaces impacts ALL of those around us.
I believe it is our responsibility as Soul-humans to be aware of our own energy field and to be accountable for the energy that we bring into all of our experiences of life throughout the day.
That does not mean we need to be perfect! But we are offered the opportunity to continuously raise our vibration and expand love and healing in our world, instead of adding unconsciously to the chaos and confusion. So, bringing our attention to cleansing our energy at this time of the seasons changing not only serves each of us individually, it also serves all of those with whom we interact every day.
Knowing how busy we are as we wear our many hats, my version of an Energy Cleanse is a "condensed" virtual energy healing where I tune into your energy chakras and aura / energy field and create a 22-minute guided cleansing process just for you (22 represents inner balance and harmony).
We don't need to be on the phone together for this to happen - you simply offer your permission for me to tune in through an exchange for the healing.
(If you are new to this way of experiencing energy, you can learn more here.)
I then share the audio recording with you via Dropbox.
And then the healing is in your hands.
Each time you listen to the clearing, you are able to drop in deeper and deeper and release more of the energetic toxins in your system. You can do it once... or you can pause every day for a few weeks and...
..."Just Let It Go" (beautiful guidance from India.Arie)
"You've been through so much
So many ups and downs
You've given your love
But never liked the way it turned out
You closed off your heart
And you carried the weight
Like a million rocks on your shoulders
But you don't have to wait for an apology
Or for someone else to make amends
When you can remember
That your healing is in your hands
Just let it go, inch by inch
Just let it go, and do it again
Just let it go, one day you'll see
Just let it go, you set yourself free"
How do I know this cleansing process works? Because I am walking my talk. I am constantly releasing the toxins and blocks that present themselves and finding greater and greater clarity. Letting it go, setting myself free. If I can do it, you can, too. And we help each other along as we go, walking "on the path unwinding, in this Circle of Life" together.
I believe in a deep connection with Source energy, efficiency, precision, and play in my own meditation time and I bring that foundation into all of my healing work. I invite you to pause for a moment and tune into my offering of this Autumn Energy Cleanse. It would be my delight to support you at this time in your healing journey!
For those craving a sense of community during these turbulent times, I invite you to engage other like-minded Souls in conversation in the Soul Shine Tribe on Facebook. And to join us on Sundays at 10am ET as we play in a virtual meditation community with the TimeKeepers' Message of the Week.
Wishing you balance and harmony on this day of the Fall Equinox!
