Spring equinox commenced on the 20th bringing the official arrival of Spring and with a wonderful solar eclipse too, did you see it? I loved the way the light changed over the space of the hour, it was so atmospheric and very moving, at the peak I saw the shape of perfect crescent moon over the sun, I was seeing spots for a while after but it was so worth it.
Here are a few words I wrote for my Friends and family to welcome the Spring.
Equinox means 'Equal Night' Day and night are in perfect balance at this time, a representation of our own need for a balanced equilibrium- the ideal state of our being. There is a very powerful energy during this time, an energy available for all of us to tune in, an opportunity to deepen our consciousness, connecting with Mother nature and the universe.
From here on out days become longer and sunlight increases, a reminder for us that the light always returns. After the darkness of winter and such a long time of quietude, the familiar draw to be within ourselves in a state of hibernation will begin to subside and like the flowers you will feel yourself open out and blossom rewarded in turn by warmth and light.
Spring Is here! A time of new growth, abundance, plenitude, new light, new life, a fresh start and new beginnings. Love birth and re-birth, a time for choosing 'new and releasing 'old'.
Take the time to walk barefoot through the grass admiring the daisies as you go, let the sunlight warm your face, stand underneath the trees and admire their show of beautiful blossom blowing gently in the breeze. All around us new shoots are appearing turning stark branches green, plants and flowers that have laid dormant spring back to life in abundance. Animals are soon to have their young bringing forth leaping lambs, ducklings and fluffy chicks. Buzzing bees will soon be hard at work and bird song returns with melody and verse.
What a wonderful time to be alive. Take a few conscious breaths of the warm spring air and root yourself in this powerful energy, let it run right through you and invigorate your soul! Go forth with positivity and light and shine it where ever you go.
Live in Gratitude. Live in Love. Live in the power of your own Truth.
Have a Beautiful Spring x
