Editors note: Equinox & New Moon Energy
As the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longerI find myself slowing down, wrapped inide a cosy blanket, sipping religiously on a cup of hot chocolate while admire how beautifully the season transitions into the next.
Earlier this Monday, marked the Autumn Equinox, which is a meaningful time of year to honor the harvest. Whether that be a "real" harvest of the things planted in your garden or the harvest of efforts and intentions for your life path that you set earlier in the year. The changing seasons are key points in the cycle of life in nature, and within this cycle many ancient cultures perceived a powerful deeper message for humanity.
While the days get shorter and the nights grow longer, we descend into the darkness of the night and face our own inner darkness—the darkness within, i.e. the ego and the subconscious—to prepare for the birth of the Light within, celebrated at the winter solstice.
We’re simply being invited to move deeper within to unravel new layers of ourselves, to heal aspects that isn’t serving, let go so the energy can transcend and elevate.
During the weekend, we had a New Moon in Libra. Needless to say that the energies have been intense and tightened as we’ve been opening up new portals.
The new moon is considered a growth phase and is an ideal time to plant seeds in our gardens as well as our hearts for the future. The new moon is an invitation to start fresh, call in intentions, and set the tone for the next cycle. With new moon in Libra, we’re invited to look at our relationships, and not only our relationships to others–our relationship to ourselves?
Healing is not linear, it’s a multi-dimensional process. “People can only meet you as deeply as they have met themselves, perhaps you've heard or read this quote before? It resonated with me deeply the first time I stumbled upon these words, and they continued to do so until I reached a deeper level of understanding.
We, me, you dear reader, can only meet ourselves as deeply as we have met ourselves. It is through the intention of wanting to go deeper than we can unravel layers within us, it is by breaking through the layers of construct that we can perceive a situation from a different perspective and depth.
As a healer, spiritual, meditation and self-love teacher I come from the standpoint that we heal ourselves, others can not do it. That’s because it is only we, ourselves who can change. Teacher are there to guide and to show how, but at the end of the day each one of us needs to take the steps towards change in order for it to manifest. Just as a Reiki healer facilitates the universal energy to flow within a client, it is the higher-self and soul of the client who is healing. The healing occurs through the intention and receiving.
Looking back at my life, I thought I had the most honest relationship with myself. I was brutally scorpionic honest and called myself out–which was the truth to some extend but in hindsight I now see how much self-hate was infused into those moments of “honesty“. One of my biggest revelation during the pas years has been the practice of meditation and through it i learned how to be kind with myself. I also learned that the sub-conscious mind is a magnificent part of our mind that we cant access through conscious thinking, however through meditation and neuroplasticity we have the power to change and create new patterns.
Although re-programing the mind is a part of it, re-connecting it to the heart and access the connection to heart is a vital part. However, we live in a time where we have been primed to not talk about emotional- and mental health, it’s been packed with shame for decades, in addition to dumb feelings away through drugs, food, shopping, sex, TV, social media and so on. It has become such an epidemic issue world wide - my core belief is that if every person on this earth genuinely loved themselves, the world very different from how it looks today.
I am happy to be able to share the body of work that I have been doing to heal my hurt. From depression, anxiety, panic-attacks, addiction, self-hate, trauma and identifying myself to the hateful and orange thought to having the kind and gentle relationship with myself. There is no doubt within me that if I was able to heal myself through this process given my history, I know you can do it to. In fact, it’s through this process that I have been teaching other to cultivate a more loving and deeper connection with themselves.
This work is designed for anyone and everyone, regardless the weight you carry please know that you don’t have to do it. It’s a choice we make, consciously or subconsciously. Unfortantly many of us are so used to not really feel good that we dont know we are without the pain. I was once there myself, although I’ve a truth seeker and spiritually open I, like others were only able too meet myself as deeply as I had met myself. The meditation and self-companion practice brought me deeper and continue to doing so.
How we feel about ourselves bleed into every relationship and every choice we make, if we’re not anchored in love it’s a matter of time before the energy manifest into the body and become a disease. Please care for yourselves as you would for the person/persons you love and adore the most. If this speaks to you, please visit the online workshop below. Only you can take the steps towards a holistic health, but you dont need to do it alone. Wish all of you a beautiful fall ahead, may you unravel new layers and find it your heart to meet yourself with more compassion than you have ever been able to do before.
