At this time of year we celebrate the Autumn Equinox – known in Wiccan circles as Mabon. It is a time for celebrating the second harvest of the year and is also a time for focusing on balance. Day and night are of equal length and we should work with these energies to restore balance to our lives.
It is also a time to realise that winter is approaching. We have sown our seeds in spring, watched them grow over the summer and are now reaping what we have sown. We gather our crops and make ready for the winter. We have time still to make any changes we need to make before the third harvest at Samhain (Halloween) but for now it is a time to cast off anything we no longer require, focus on having balance and equilibrium in our lives and prepare for the rest and darkness of winter as it approaches.
I love this time of year – I love watching the leaves change colour and the crisp, coolness of the mornings. One of my favourite things to do is to go walking in the forest park near my home. It is just such a magical place – you feel completely connected with nature and it really recharges the batteries.
I try and make time to do this at least once a week – it really helps me stay grounded, keeps my soul happy and restores balance to my life.
I thought therefore that I would do a guided visualisation with you this week on the show to help you confront your dark side and get rid of anything that no longer serves you and to also help you see the light within you – to be grateful for your blessings and to restore balance to your life by focusing on both light and dark.
Please listen in on Thursday 24th September at 21:00 BST and enjoy a special guided meditation written especially for the show.
