How the Fall Equinox Invites us to Restore Balance in our Body, Mind and Spirit

How the Fall Equinox Invites us to Restore Balance in our Body, Mind and Spirit

by Andrea Pacini September 21, 2022

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.

Taking inventory of each main area in our life can shine a light on areas that may need some more focused attention. Using some colored pencils and the graphic above, fill in the areas which correspond to your life right now, with 0-3 being not satisfied "can definitely improve", 4-7 being moderately satisfied "overall happy but still room for improvement" and 8-10 being very satisfied "achieving most or all of my goals in this area"

Reflection Questions to Help Restore Balance

1) Which area of my life feels most in balance right now?

2) Why is this area of my life strong and balanced?

3) What factors, habits, practices, people or support have helped me achieve balance in this area?

4) Which area of my life feels most out of balance right now?

5) Why do I feel I am struggling in this area?

6) How can I bring this area into more of a balance?

7) How can I take responsibility for and reclaim power in this area?

8) What am I learning about myself from this imbalance?

9) How will bringing this area into balance benefit me and those around me?

10) List gratitude for all of the support you've received and lessons you've learned in each area

  • Gather your supplies. You'll need a large bowl filled halfway with water and 4-12 de-stemmed blooms of your favorite flower(s). Notes: Roses are said to have the highest vibration of any flower. 
  • Find a comfortable seat on the ground on a yoga mat or cushion - either inside or outside. You may want to place a rolled blanket underneath your sits bones to help support you and keep your pelvic bowl and spine in alignment. Arrange your supplies as desired around your space with the bowl of water directly in front of you.

The Energetics of Chasing

by Andrea Pacini December 18, 2022

⁣Whether it’s love, good health, a solid relationship, serenity, freedom, a title, respect, or a certain number in the bank or on the scale - anything you chase will always be outside of you. ⁣

Apart from you. ⁣
A Perpetual Separation.⁣

The energy of chasing by nature keeps you in pursuit and the desired "thing" running away from you. This creates more resistance & frustration and actually widens the gap between you and what you want.
