As a shamanic practitioner and energy healer it is so much easier to help others than myself. I accepted my body’s wise offering and the opportunity to dig deep into the soul, for examination and transmutation.
I am going through a major transition, my age factors into much of it, something I am grateful for, to experience the different stages life offers.
As a strong person surrender is difficult. I knew that the universe had carved me out a chance to go deep within.
I am grieving and the emotions are strong within me. I am someone who marinates the energy within me for a period of time, building it within, until I can no longer keep it and then I am able to channel it through. I admit it is challenging, I realize this is the personality and characteristics of who I am, and I accept this as a gift.
Today, the autumn equinox, I feel a difference. The fall represents the feminine, the yin, where we become passive, thoughtful and slower. A time of gratitude, reflection for the summer’s abundance. This is a perfect day for release and the dying of the old, as I allow my body to find its natural rhythm, and follow mother Earth and accept the flow.
I know there is no other side, only that which is present within me.
I burn dried lavender and rosemary, as a symbol of death, to honor the transition, for myself, family, community and the world.
Blessings of the season!
