Finding Balance Between the Light and Darkness
Bountiful blessings on this beautiful fall equinox! Today, the light and darkness find balanced perfection. The fall equinox energetically opens the opportunity to invite equilibrium and stability into your life. This time of year also energetically supports the essence of letting go. A perfect opportunity to reflect upon and release the things in your life that no longer serve you. Additionally, this time of harvest offers the occasion to celebrate your blessings. Bringing in the energies of balance, release, and gratitude go a very long way in helping calm stress and anxiety. Are you ready to shine a light upon the dark spaces and places in your life?
Ritual and ceremony are powerful ways to acknowledge and make the most of the equinox’s harmonizing energies. Here are some of my favorite fall equinox ritual suggestions.
As the energy of the equinox surrounds you, take a moment to holistically reflect upon and journal about any imbalances you are currently experiencing. Include anything you feel ready to release that is not presently working in your life. What is of the light? What is of shadow? Evaluate what you are ready to let go of in your life.
Once your journal time feels complete, burn your written pages, knowing that as the smoke rises and dissipates, so does that which you wish to clear. Set an intention that you find peace and harmony within your center of being as you release anything that has pulled you off balance. Give the cooled ashes to the earth with gratitude as you welcome in the energies of peace and harmony.
Spend some time reflecting upon the following questions:
Cut out several slips of paper. Write down each blessing on the individual slips of paper. Once this feels complete, place your slips of paper in a glass jar. When you are feeling down or struggling, take a moment to read all the blessings contained in your jar.
There are stones and crystals that encourage you to make the most of the fall equinox’s beneficial energies. These powerful healing allies facilitate shining a light into the darkness and bringing about more harmony in your life. Invite your chosen stones into your meditation and self-reflection time to experience their healing help. The following stones support energetic clearing, empowerment, harmony, and balance the darkness and the light:
Clear Quartz facilitates the journey in coming to know your light self. The vibratory essence of Clear Quartz supports the clearing of energetic toxins from the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. It imparts a wave of cleansing energy that uptakes unwanted toxins, flushing these energies out of your auric field, restoring harmonious flow. Clear Quartz encourages the release of that which no longer serves your highest good.
Pyrite brings the energy of light into darkness. Akin to turning a light switch on, the energy of Pyrite allows you to clearly see and pierce through the illusion of shadow and darkness. This helps hone the capacity to discern between shadow and light. Therefore, Pyrite is a helpful talisman for anyone who struggles with understanding and perceiving the difference between deception and the truth.
Kyanite is the stone of energetic balance and harmony. For this reason, Kyanite supports equilibrium on all levels: physical, emotional, mental, heart, intuitive, and soul. This stone of balance and clarity brings in an energetic flow of calm tranquility that can assist in soothing anxiety. Kyanite disperses negativity and energetic density.
Take a moment this fall equinox to engage in some self-care and ritual. The time you spend will go an exceptionally long way in creating more peace, harmony, and balance in your life!
