Earlier this evening I attended the wake for my next door neighbor, a woman I’ve know for as long as I can remember. It seems fitting that it occurs today, as it is the Fall Equinox, also celebrated as Mabon. Mabon is a time for giving thanks for what one has. And as I sat talking with old neighborhood friends I remembered what a sweet childhood we all had. We were carefree and cared for in a way that is near impossible in these times. A deep sense of gratitude washed over me and I felt more content that I had in a long while.
According to Lena Stevens over at Power Path Seminars and School of Shamanism:
The Equinox is always a great time to RESET and to honor endings so that you can make room for new beginnings. The endings or completions are especially important during this season and especially in light of changes that may be occurring in your life. Acknowledge the changes and honor the endings that are coming about because of them.
Hmm–I guess I was on the way to honoring this energy without knowing it.
Questions to stir in your cauldron right now:
What things are coming to an end in your life right now? How can you honor these changes in your life? What lessons do these endings bring to you? What beginnings are you calling in or do you need to call in at this time?
