Spring Equinox Walk – Stillness in the Spring Morning

This morning I walked along Georgian Bay (part of the Great Lake Huron) but it did not look like spring had arrived. Instead I was treated to this wonderful view that looked like pyramids on the ice.  Everything was still as the water was frozen near the shoreline. But these wondrous formations fascinated me.  A lady who has lived in this area since a child said they were water spouts.  Sure enough as I looked carefully the center top of each ‘pyramid’ was open.  She said the water spouts out of the pyramids that she called ‘water spouts’.  No water was spouting this morning but I would love to see the water spouting out of them.

As I neared home, I saw some small green sprouts poking through the ground where the snow had melted.  Yes, spring had arrived!

I love Japanese Haiku poetry.  I wrote this one about the arrival of Spring.

May you soak up the feelings of stillness on this Spring Equinox. It is when we enter our stillness that we begin to experience feelings of renewal, hope and new beginnings that the energy of the light of the Spring Equinox brings.  The Equinox invites us to create balance and harmony and to move with the natural rhythms of the universe.  Take a few moments to meditate or reflect and allow your mind and heart to open to something new and allow it to grow.

May the radiant Spring blessings of light fill your heart with peace and warmth,

Peacefully,  Jane

An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth’s equator passes through the center of the Sun, causing day and night to be of approximately equal duration all over the planet. Our planet has two yearly equinox events, one in spring and one in fall.

The spring equinox is a time of rebirth for all life on our planet. As winter places us in a life of darkness, equinox comes to rejoice with more hours of sunlight. All life on Earth is dependent upon the sun. It’s not difficult to see that every living creature and plant is in celebration at the time of spring equinox. Birds sing praise, flowers open wide, bees dance, and babies of all species are born.

What does this mean for you? Spring is a beautiful reminder for us humans to transform ourselves as well as our home. You may feel energized and more alive than you have in months. This is because our sacred sun has returned to bring new beginnings and balance. While the day and night are in equal balance, the brain, body, and nature follow this lead naturally. Here are some ideas on how you can personally get the most from spring equinox.

Home

You have probably heard the term “spring cleaning” your entire life. This is because your ancestors knew the importance of the equinox and the role it plays even indoors. Here are some ways you can refresh your home environment.

  • Open windows as often as possible this time of year. Welcome the new beginnings that seem to blow in through the breeze of a warm spring day.
  • Go through your home from top to bottom, searching through every corner and getting rid of what you no longer use. Our house rule: If it hasn’t been used in a year, we don’t need it. Although there may be a few things that this rule does not apply to, it generally holds true for each home. Detach from these items, allowing room for new as well as space to feel uncluttered. This is one of the most important items on your spring to-do list.
  • Deep clean your home, including windows, heat/AC filters, ceiling fans, etc.
  • Have your children go through their toys. Give each child a box and allow them to fill the box on their own. This is a rebirth for them, as well as reducing work for you.
  • Smudge your home after cleaning.

If you are busy outside the home or feel you will not have time to complete these tasks, consider hiring help. It is worth the money spent for a cleared living space, which creates a cleared mind.

You

You are just as much a part of nature as the tree you view from the window. With that said, flow with the natural balance that accompanies the rebirth of spring. What is your personal rebirth? This could be spiritual, physical, a new career, or relocating. These easy steps will allow you to discover what you would like to be top priority. Often in life we are aware we want something to change, we may even know what we would like the end result to be, but what must we change first? What new, fresh idea is worthy of our attention?

  • Meditate for 20 minutes each day. Begin the meditation by asking, “Who am I?” You may have asked as well as answered this question in previous meditations. This is a question that has an ever-evolving answer. The Universe may have a surprise answer for you this spring.
  • Spend as much time in the sun as possible. Temperatures are warm and welcoming in the spring. The equinox sun has a vibrational energy that sparks liveliness and new ideas. Just be sure to protect yourself from the sun and soak safely.
  • List the top three things in your life that you are ready to birth. While writing also visualize the end result.
  • Practice the Law of Least Effort. Spring equinox is pure rebirth everywhere we look, so allow your mind and body to harmonize with this and release the thoughts that create paradox.
  • Make time for Sun Salutations by appreciating the sun, giving thanks, and allowing your body to connect as one with the force.
  • Establish a fun ritual with your family, such as celebrating with an outdoor activity that involves color. For some, this is the traditional egg hunt, but you can create your own unique household tradition. Painting flowerpots for the birth of plants, planning a colorful meal where each guest brings a designated color, or planting seeds and marking each row with colorful ribbon are all ideas.

Play often this spring! Take the last list of ideas and continue to build on them. Some adults may look at play as ‘a waste of time,’ but I assure you it is quite the opposite. If you live in a cold climate, you may even have a bit of cabin fever or seasonal depression. The results from this can create blockage in any rebirth or creative ideas. Play, especially outside, will:

  • Revive youthfulness
  • Increase brain activity
  • Stimulate creativity
  • Relieve stress

The temperatures in spring are perfect for running, playing, hiking, and enjoying any of your other favorite activities. Bask in all that is new around you.

For those of you the love the cosmic energies of Soluntra King from New Zealand, here is her latest news~

“Blessings of Love, Peace within and Joy.

Happy New Moon in Pisces, Sun in Pisces and lots of planets in Pisces too, wishing you a great cosmic time and surrender into the all that is..

I trust you enjoyed the 13th February blast; I had just crawled out of my cocoon and got thrown back into it for a few days after the huge input of cosmic rays that illuminated us.

The next big blast is the Equinox March 20th. And I am sure you are still feeling the ongoing waves.

Personally I notice how time has slipped away even more, if that’s possible, sometimes I am up at 6.30am but so absorbed in what I do and end up having breakfast at 6pm but do not feel hungry or notice where the time went. You may also be noticing how you do not need to eat so much anymore as we get lighter we feed on light.
Another thing I notice is that before the shift I would normally need to tune into something, now it’s just on automatic all the time, and sometimes with a quick commentary of what ever or who ever it is. Not interfering in their energy field at all but just a rundown for my own requirements and how to then operate with the person or situation for the best outcome for all.
Of course the real biggy is that everything is being exposed now in the bright light,
no hiding ones unresolved duality issues and I have been amazed by how people are exposing their agendas, it’s all so transparent now.

Below is a new article on why that may be with the new light codes coming for the Sun, as the Suns have all graduated as well.

I also have my books on special and below the Cosmic Events for this month.
See you in the dancing light of our hearts delight, shinning bright.
In the One Heart Love Soluntra”
