Vernal Equinox 2012
Visioning for your Spring Equinox Celebration
Tuesday Mar 20, 12:42 AM (PST) or 3:42 PM (EST)
The Vernal Equinox is a spring day when the sun moves north over the equator to make a balance of yin and yang. The sun rises due east and sets due west. At this time, the great sphinx in Egypt points directly toward the rising sun and in Bali the new year begins.
Reflect on your goals to create your vision for 2012
At the Winter Solstice, goal-related seeds were written down. The Spring Equinox is a time to turn your vision into a plan of action to bring goals into reality. To define your vision write down 1 – 3 actions you can take to manifest each goal.
- What is your vision, thoughts and plan of action for your career?
- What is your vision, thoughts and plan of action for your personal growth?
- What is your vision, thoughts and plan of action for your spiritual goals?
For those of you that missed the Winter Solstice, write your goals on two separate pieces of paper. One page is burned and one page is tucked away in a special place where you can find it at the end of 2012. You will discover at the Autumn Equinox which goals have been manifested. Burning your prayers or goals gives them power and helps release any blocks.
Manifestation happens when the feng shui environment is set for your vision, a plan of action is created and thoughts are chosen for focusing the mind until the goal is achieved. Using your environment as a tool to support your annual goals is important as it stimulates a positive belief system. An attitude of gratitude, inner awareness and discipline of thought are keys to realization. Your focused mind is an active form of manifestation that aligns the vision with your passion and your plan of action. The art of manifestation includes a gratitude, passion and the ability to hold a vision and sustain a focused mind. While accessing passion for your goals, take time to tap into the incredible power and guidance from your Inner Self.

Sound holds everything together. One of the Sacred Truths in the Medicine Wheel of Peace is Hearing the Truth as it relates to Harmony-Wholeness that is found in the Sacred Space of all creation. The Truths teach All is One – One is All
As you sit in your garden just before sunrise, close your eyes to listen to the rhythm of harmony and wholeness. Personally experience the synthesis of the elements as you hear a water fountain’s soft gurgles over stones, the wind moving over you and through the garden and how the warm sunlight stimulates a beautiful wholeness in a bird’s song.
Allow total surrender to a magical moment. Take time to express your gratitude to the sounds of Harmony-Wholeness. Then, before leaving ask Mother Earth to heal a special relationship with Her Harmony, Wholeness and Love.
Celebrating Autumn Equinox 2011

It is a time to set the focus only on feeling and expressing gratitude with others all that has been received. Together we begin a walk into the West by slowing down. It’s a good time to get to know yourself by asking:
- What are the fruits of my harvest this year?
- How have I changed? Thoughts? Emotions? Spiritual growth?
- How am I more aware?
- How has my consciousness changed?
- Who am I now?
Between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice, we reflect on all that has happened since the Winter Solstice 2010. Because it’s a time to get the ‘soil’ ready for planting new seeds at the Winter Solstice, December 21, 2012, ask yourself:
- Who do I want to be?
- What positive thoughts am I going to hold throughout 2012?
- For 2012 what seeds do I want to plant for self, family, others and earth wellness?
- What action can I take throughout 2012 that can sustain earth wellness, peace, love, joy or harmony for seven generations into the future?
When we open our eyes, we see beyond ourselves.
When we open our ears, we listen beyond ourselves.
When we give ourselves over to this attraction we grow in self-awareness.

The Xochimilca people of ancient Mexico were skillful water farmers. Their floating farms were called chinampas and were placed on top of the swampy Lake Xochimilco. Built from cane structures, then filled with mud from the bottom of the lake these platform garden beds were huge and anchored in place by the trees that lined the shore. These ancient Mexican farmers grew vegetables, flowers and herbs that were fertilized with the rich nutrients culled from the bottom of the lake. Today these gardens can still be seen when visiting the Mexican ecological park, the Parque Natural Xochimilco. For more information, visit.
