Autumn Equinox Friday, September 22

 

 

The Autumn Equinox marks the arrival of the season of Fall, traditionally seen as a period of changes leading to The Dark of Winter. It comes after the Harvest Moon which is the first Full Moon of the season.

Fall is a season for balancing light and dark, letting go, and accepting the impermanence of things.

Balancing Darkness with the Light

On the Autumn Equinox, day and night are of equal length. This signals the need to balance light and darkness within us.

Letting Go

Autumn is a time for letting go and releasing things that have been a burden.  Fall is a great time to allow Spirit take charge of our lives and so we practice letting go of control.

Acknowledging Impermanence

Autumn reminds us of the impermanence of everything. The leaves fall and the  bare branches remind us of the fleeting nature of all things.

Fall reminds us to live every day to the fullest as there are no guarantees of tomorrow.

This brings to mind a powerful prayer that seems perfect to affirm during the Autumn Equinox .

  Metta Loving Kindness Prayer 

“May I be at peace. May my heart remain open.May I awaken to the light of my own nature. May I be healed.May I be a source of healing for all beings. ~Buddhist Tradition

 

About Pendulums

p2421

The word ‘pendulum’ is from Modern Latin pendulum, first used around 1643. It is derived from the Latin adjective pendulus “hanging down”.

Pendulums can be made of different materials, some people using a simple necklace with a crystal or charm at the end. It is simply a string or chain, weighted by a pointed crystal or some other form of heavy object called a “bob”.It should weigh less than half an ounce. The best length for the pendulum is six inches.
It is a simple tool used for communicating and gaining guidance from the spiritual world. The pendulum is said to act as an antenna which will amplify signals or energy vibrations emanating from a spiritual guide or the Divine energies you’ve called upon.

These vibrations focus their attention on the pendulum and cause it to move in specific directions, giving you answers and guidance to the questions you put to the tool.

summer soltcise

The word Solstice comes from the latin word ‘solstitum.

Sol, means ‘sun’, and stitium, means ‘stop’. This is the time where the sun appears to have stopped.

Summer Solstice,  is the first day of summer,the longest day of the year, and has the shortest night.

From this start date the days get shorter and the nights get longer.

The solstice, sometimes called midsummer because by now farmers have long since completed  their planting.

This is the day of the year where the sun is at the highest point over the Equator, and the farthest north. Energetically,  a portal of positive celestial potential opens up.

The Mayans, Essenes, Druids and Egyptians, built temples that captured this moment of alignment, and they would take part in sacred ceremonies.  The head of the Sphinx at the Great Pyramids of Egypt,  has the sun of the summer solstice symbol at its crown.

Light is spiritual by nature.The sun and stars have much spiritual  power that has its roots in the  higher dimensions. The summer solstice is described as the gate of ascent out of this world into the realm of spirit by both Krishna, in the famous text The Bhagavad Gita, and in the designs of the secret caves of Mithras.

The summer solstice is a celebration of the return to light. It reminds us of the light that resides in all of us  .

It is about awakening, and how the light cancels out the darkness.

The summer solstice is a time to spend outdoors , to embrace the powerful sun energy,  To be gratitude about the abundance and blessings that are in our lives. Giving thanks.
