Atonement & Bringing Out The Best
Fall is upon us and the holy days of atonement have manifested a time of reflection and release of what no longer serves the higher good. The shedding of leaves correlates to the shedding of grief, fear, disappointment, shame, worry, and doubt. It is also a symbol of letting go of the false self that is detached from the wholeness that embodies wellness and goodness. The unhealthy ego must fall in order for the Light of the Spirit to rise. Instead of putting energy toward separation, blame, and fear, this is a time of year to reset the inner compass to the cosmic rhythm of Love.
This time of year represents when Moses received the Ten Commandments. These ten virtues briefly state that humans are here to believe in a higher power, to only worship that Light, to rest, to honor family, to honor all life, to not steal, to not cheat, to not lie, to not deceive, and to not worship or idol the physical. The symbolism of these virtues arriving in the Fall season is that in shedding these aspects of the self that are out of harmony, we are able to upgrade our lives for the better and start anew. Every moon cycle reminds us of this transformation that is constantly resurfacing month to month, but at the nodes of the equinox and solstice, we have the support of the Universe to make big advances in our healing. Whatever virtues you believe hold value to you as a HU-man BEing, this time of year creates a space for the clearing of the past in order to take another step toward the NOW.
In order for us to know what to work on, we have to be completely honest with ourselves. Where are we and where are we headed? In this Universal Mercury Period, the mind is very active and can sometimes distract us away from where we really want to be when we are out of balance on one level or another. The power of the Equinox is a catalyst to returning to one's center and recalibrating in order to continue on the path intended. It is a reset button that energizes and empowers us to continue on our mission here on Earth. Stop and remember who you are. Why are you here? What work did you come to the Earth to share in order to make it a better place than when you arrived? First start with the self in healing, and by going through that fire, the next step of the path is revealed.
