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.
