Tomorrow marks the Fall Equinox and signifies one of two days out of the year (the other being the Spring or 'Vernal' Equinox) when day and night are almost exactly equal lengths and the entire planet is most in balance. 

Taking our queue from Nature's rhythms, this week is the optimal time to examine balance in our lives.

How to Manifest with the New Moon

How to Manifest with the New Moon

by Andrea Pacini May 29, 2022

Working with the moon phases is an accessible way to deepen our connection both to nature and to ourselves. I find that honoring these rhythms of nature can make it easier to identify, recognize and honor our own natural ebbs and flows.

During the new moon cycle, the sun and moon align with each other, merging  yang energy - the heating, masculine, assertive energy of the sun, with yin energy - the cooling, feminine, receptive energy of the moon. The balancing of these two polar opposite energies in the dark sky creates a powerful invitation to both let go and start new - it's the perfect canvas for a fresh start.

How to Work with the Fire Element to Accelerate Growth and Promote Transformation

by Andrea Pacini March 27, 2022

Mindfully incorporating or channeling the elements enhances our connection to both the natural world and to Source and increases their respective characteristics within our daily lives. Fire is useful to ignite passion, creativity, action and intention and is also a powerful ally in destroying old patterns and beliefs that weigh us down. As we enter Spring with new growth and opportunities at the forefront, now is a perfect time to welcome a bit of fire so that we can maximize the “full steam ahead” vibration that’s going on collectively.

A Ready to Bloom Ritual to Welcome Spring

by Andrea Pacini March 20, 2022

From a psychological perspective, ritual helps unite the hemispheres of our brain and creates more mind-body-soul-spirit unity. From a spiritual perspective, rituals help realign us energetically and enhance our connection to the Divine/Source/Universe/Earth's natural rhythms. Actively observing and participating in this cyclical way of being connects us more deeply to the world around us and also to our own spirit.

Water Works! How to Harness the Power of Water to Improve Your Health & Happiness

by Andrea Pacini February 27, 2022

Water is amazingly versatile in its healing capabilities. Anyone who has taken a steamy shower after a long day, floated in the ocean, or enjoyed a crisp glass of water can attest to its ability to quickly shift energy and refresh body, mind and spirit. The legendary work of Dr. Emoto proves that water has its own consciousness, and as a result - it holds energy and is highly responsive to thoughts, intentions and emotions. This knowledge allows us to work with this ever-changing and life-giving resource in multiple ways to help support our physical, mental and emotional health and daily self-care practice.

What's Your Manifestation Style?

What's Your Manifestation Style?

by Andrea Pacini January 16, 2022

During this time of year, “goals” and “manifestation” became major buzzwords that can create a lot of unnecessary stress and pressure for many of us. I know for years I avoided resolution-making and goal-setting because I :don’t like details: All of it just felt like a lot of hassle and hard work and led to total shutdown on my part.

10 Ways to Regulate Your Nervous System

10 Ways to Regulate Your Nervous System

by Andrea Pacini October 24, 2021

Navigating this modern world with a hefty dose of constant accessibility, doom scrolling and EMF saturation has anxiety and nervous system dysregulation at an all-time high.

This enhanced and constant state of threat activates the amygdala - the part of the brain responsible for survival and instincts during fear response, which then results in a flight, fight or freeze state. The brain’s top priority is survival so when the amygdala is activated, the frontal cortex – the area of the brain responsible for reasoning and logic, all but shuts down so the brain can go all in on safety and survival. This response creates a state of hyperarousal in the nervous system which in turn stimulates the release of cortisol and adrenaline, leaving us feeling depleted, overwhelmed and burned out.

Somatic Experiencing: How to Communicate With Your Body and Get Out of Your Head

Somatic Experiencing: How to Communicate With Your Body and Get Out of Your Head

by Andrea Pacini August 29, 2021

Did you know that sometimes the body can communicate much more clearly than the brain? The human brain is wired for survival which means that our thoughts tend to get stuck running repeatedly through the same neural pathways.

Once the brain identifies a pattern that is successful in keeping us alive, it sticks with it and creates shortcuts to help improve our chances of survival. These grooves or pathways become deeply entrenched within our gray matter and then convert to default programming. This is a very efficient system for survival. But given that the average human has about 60,000 thoughts a day, of these, 90% are recurring and of these recurring thoughts, 80% are negative – this is not so helpful for clear and innovative decision making, problem solving or general peacefulness.
