The Autumn Equinox is the point in the year when the days are getting shorter and the dark and light are of exactly equal length – a point of perfect balance.
It’s a time when the berries are like bright in the hedgerows and apples and plums are sweetening on the trees. The sap in the trees returns back to the roots for the winter, creating vivid colourful displays as the leaves begin to die. The cycle of the natural world is coming to an end as the growing season closes and the sunlight wanes.
But it is a time of great gratitude. A time to be thankful for the harvest and to reap the rewards of the plans we set in place earlier in the year. Like many of you I set goals at the Winter Solstice, at Imbolc and the Spring Equinox. My goals mainly focused on my business as you’d expect but there were also other underlying goals that I hadn’t set with clear definition (now there is a lesson in clearly setting goals with detail!) which are coming to fruition around this time. The health goal and work I’ve been doing with my Heart Chakra are both showing results in their different but still very positive ways. The business goals have exceeded my expectations and it’s wonderful to see these long term plans such as my work at Twinwoods and Verve Wellness Studio at Bedford Heights coming on line now too.
I have many things to be grateful for in my life – my health and my business, my friends, family and new people coming into my life; and whilst I often take time for gratitude, today I will do so with more definition and from my newly opened Heart Chakra.
In love and light
