I came across the above picture today, a flower growing through the cracks in the asphalt, and loved how this image so beautifully describes this moment, particularly as we come into our Spring/Autumn Equinox on the 22/23 September 2020.
Through the cracks in life, this is how the light gets in, but also how the beauty can be unleashed out into the world. Where ever you may find yourself ‘planted’ in this moment, no matter the challenges, we each have the power to choose our thoughts and make the most of how we flower-shower the world with love. In the grey-bleak asphalt of this world, don’t ever loose sight of who you are, why you are here, and the bigger dream of your Soul.
Where there is HOPE there is potential.
Where there is TENACITY there is possibility of transformation.
Where there is LOVE, there is always a way…. just follow the Sun.

Each year as the Sun enters Libra toward the end of September we have the Spring Equinox (Southern Hemisphere) and the Autumn Equinox (Northern Hemisphere).
As day & night are close to equal length on the Equinox, the Equinox represents our place of transition, that ‘moment’ between the in & out breath, the space between our thoughts/words, the eternal stillness that is present in the simplicity of the present moment.
The Equinox helps us find that stillness, that place of unity, that eternal space that exists within us. It helps us to embrace and become that balance in our lives – balance of the Masculine/Feminine, balance of the Soul/Ego, balance of the Being/Doing, balance of Heaven/Earth and the balance of Spirit/Matter.’
Through Equinox stillness, we may gain a glimpse of what is possible when we open our hearts and come together in a grander version of our selves, and grander version of each other… and ultimately discover our stories are not so different after all.
The Equinox helps us to remember that we are part of a grander whole. When we let go of self-righteous need to choose a side and instead see ourselves as an integral part of something so much more beautiful, that’s the moment miracles are seeded. That is the moment that our flowers bloom.
As I talk about in Lightrition your Life, everyday life is a ceremony with nature. It’s up to us whether we choose to live in reverence of the ceremony, or push hard against flow to try and control all the variables before us. Personally, I find the former so much easier!
Our annual Equinoxes & Solstices are sacred points in our Solar Year, to spend some time feeling into the energy, and shifting gears in our life to embody the change in flow in the natural world. Here are a few suggestions to help you flow in ceremony over the coming weeks.
Detox – At the change of Seasons I enjoy starting a detox, and in fact I started a 28 day juice fast yesterday. It is my way of preparing my body for a shift in gears, a letting go of the last season, and my way of welcoming in the new. You could do a juice fast for a day, a week, a month… or maybe just eat a little LIGHTer on the Equinox as your way of gifting more LIGHT into your life as you kick off a new cycle of Spring or Autumn.
Cleaning – Clean your house, your office, your meditation space, your closet… make space for a fusion of order & balance. Clutter, unnecessary ‘stuff’ clogs up your life physically/energetically. Space is need for a rhythm of balance & harmony for flow with Grace & Ease in your life.
Journal / Vision Board – In addition to my detox, I also enjoy spending a little time on the Equinox writing & drawing in my journal… and on occasion I may also include some photos of things that I LOVE. This process helps me to feel into the freshness of the new Season, what do I wish to invite into my life (as well as what do i wish to let go of)… that will ultimately bring more balance, harmony, joy & vitality over coming months.
Rhythm & Harmony – Find space over the next few days to experience with wonderment & curiosity the rhythms & natural harmonies of life. You could meditate on your breath – focussing on the in & out breath…. and the expansive ONENESS of the space between the breath. Walk in nature and feel the rhythms of the natural world – how the songs of the birds, the wind in the leaves & ripples of sunlight on the leaves all harmonically create a symphony of life around you. Sit by the ocean and tune into the rhythms of the waves – particularly the space between the wave coming in and the flow of the wave going out. Or even wake up early to watch the Sunrise and later in the day watch the Sunset and feel the expansive ONENESS of the cycles of life both around and through you.
Whales & Dolphins are keepers of evolutionary wisdom and have so much to share with us. With Jupiter moving direct in the lead up to our Equinox, I was guided to spend my weekend with these water sages.
When in the presence of Whales, I feel a deep energetic transmission, a full body/mind/soul transmission that really defy’s words. There is a feeling of comfort, knowing, ancient wisdom. And after spending time with these magnificent animals, you come away feeling centred, enlightened and more intune with your Soul’s calling.
Here is a snippet of one of the many whales that graced our day out on the water. Hope you receive a little of the energy too from the video.
