Tonight around 11:21 pm marks the spring equinox for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Only twice a year, once in March and once in September, does the sun shine directly on the equator, making the length of day and night nearly equal in all parts of the world.
From an energetic standpoint, many of us have been in the darkness of winter for several months now. Buried beneath layers of winter layers, heavy coats, scarves and hats, we’ve literally been covered up. When we’re cold we tend to hunch our backs a bit and put our heads down, to intuitively protect our vital organs from the biting winds and chilly temperatures. Consequently, our spine and our energy becomes withdrawn. With early darkfall, we’ve tended to stay inside in our private spaces and homes, in a quasi-hibernation mode! And maybe, just maybe, we’ve lost some of our true consciousness as it related to our diet- eating bigger portions of “comforting”, heavier foods.
Today I felt something very special in the air when I woke up. It actually started yesterday and last night. Maybe you felt it too? The moon was huge last night, and today with March Equinox the universal shift of seasons is officially here. Unlike man-chosen holidays which can fall on any which day that our forefathers happened to pick or assign to it, the universal shifts of the earth simply can not be ignored. It is a huge energetic call to WAKE UP, and a call to see what is going on with our energy, and if it is stagnant, get it flowing again. And thirdly and very importantly, it is a call for us regain our focus and make a conscious choice on where we want to focus our energy and what we really want to achieve.
I had a huge wakeup in a physical form at the end of last week. My publisher, Harlequin, sent me several large boxes of my book, The Beauty Detox Solution, that I had to sign for promotional purposes. It was the first time I’d seen a bunch of copies of the book!!! They were packed altogether, like cereal boxes get to the grocery store. It is the same way that bookstores all around the country are receiving them, right as I write this and you read this. It was my holy crap moment: The launch is really happening!!!! You know when you know something is going to happen, but until it gets really close you can’t really prepare for it? Maybe it was that way for some of my friends out there that had a baby, where the birth and labor was not like you imagined, or the first time you tried something really scary, like snowboarding down a black diamond.
My book is really personal. It has a lot of personal stories and my heart is really in it, all over the pages! :) So I can’t describe the feeling of seeing hundreds of them at the same time printed, and knowing that ready or not, it’s getting out there!! I’ve worked with and around films for a while now, so I know how personal a film is for the filmmakers involved. But there is something that seems even more personal to me about a book… it’s my own words and ideas, all just put out there in a manual that one can read as many times as they want.
So yes, you can say I’m awake now! There’s no hiding and no hanging out or drifting through. The next few months for me will be especially “awakening” we should say, as there’s so much coming down the can with the launch! The sleepy winter is over!!!
So I encourage you to WAKE UP! Spring is upon us all. If there is something you feel you have a limitation with, if you attach it to the infinite there will be no more limitation. Remember we all have so much more power than we know, all within us. So figure out how to get energy from the world around you and harness it the best you can.
In love and health,
