I love the sunlight this time of year. Yesterday, I went on a hike as the sun was setting, and arrived back to my car as just as night fell.
Hiking, I dropped in to feel this shift, this time of the Fall Equinox - the balance point between light and dark.
What's opening in me? What's releasing?
I'm working with tumeric - who is a great teacher of balancing inner and outer worlds. Of clearing out old patterns, and opening to discover what's true for me now. She brings a beautiful healing light that holds the space for the shadows to emerge and be returned back into light.
As part of a class I'm in right now, we went on a journey internally yesterday. In this journey, I entered a temple, one made of sandstone, somewhere out in the desert. It's a temple I've been to before many times, not in this life, but one I know in my heart. Incredible sunlight and shadows danced across the walls and floor. A large bowl of water sat on the altar, just below ancient carvings etched in the sandstone walls.
A divine presence channelled through the temple. My vessel graciously welcomed it. The presence filled the temple, offering warmth, love and grace. As I opened to receive it, it highlighted the places I'm still holding back, the energies that are still not allowing me to fully receive and embody. The places I don't trust myself, for fear of being seen and obliterated. The places I hold myself small, as not deserving of such beauty.
The energies which are being cleared now - are both personal in this life and ancient from lifetimes ago. It's takes an awareness to allow these to arise into my consciousess, often times in chaotic flashes, and gently untangle them, so they can release their grasp and influence on my present reality.
There's a light pushing through my cells, guiding the release. What is emerging is - a bright hope, a joy and a deep knowing that this path I'm on is exactly perfect. A deep trust of myself and the unfolding. A reclamation of what always was, but was forgotten.
No matter what, I can navigate. I am navigating it all perfectly.
I embrace the fullness of life - the challenges as lessons, the struggles as paths of transformation. To become a vessel for more.
The immense beauty in all of it humbles me. My heart settles deeper. My heart's desires, my heart's knowing - they are threads pulling me through the illusions, keeping me on my true path.
Feeling gratitude for the opportunity to drop in deeply on this Equinox.
Gratitude for the support and guidance of tumeric, offering her effervescent healing light.
Gratitude for those in my life near and far in time and space that are close in my heart, and my teachers.
And I welcome the shift that is taking us into winter, with gratitude, love and humility.
