How to Celebrate Fall ~ Autumn Equinox

LivingFae_11

It’s that time year, when summer has ended, the leaves are changing color and falling, and day and night are once again in balance. Autumn equinox is upon us. If you are in the southern hemisphere it’s your spring, where you plant the seeds for something new. But here in the North Hemisphere we celebrate the blessings of fall.

This time of year is all about balance, the astrological sign of Libra.  Use this season as way to restore balance in your life. Look to the areas of your life that seem out balance and do the work necessary to bring them to. Focus on an activity that helps to restore balance like yoga, and if you don’t already do it on a regular basis, spend some time meditating. Meditation will not only help you to restore balance in your inner and outer world, but it’s a good way to nurture and care for your deepest inner most part of yourself. The more you nurture your inner light, the more prepared you are for the darker days that lie ahead.

Celebrate the blessings of fall. Celebrate the areas of your life that are already in balance. Celebrate your inner harvest.

Honor the god/goddess in you. Light a candle, fill your home with the scents of the season like pumpkin lattes, nutmeg, cinnamon, and spiced apples. Then make a list of all the achievements and experiences that you have had or felt during the past few seasons.  This is a way of restoring gratitude in your life, because you will realize all you have done and how you lived through all your challenges during the past months. When you appreciate them its makes it easier for any unbalanced areas to come into balance.

Happy Wonderful Autumn Equinox.

How to Create Abundance with Lakshmi

Jai Maa!

mahalakshmi-PZ41_l

Having just returned from 4 blissful days of kirtan, yoga and workshops at Shakti Fest in Joshua Tree, CA, I AM exploding with divine feminine light and love to cast upon you. Shakti Fest is a more retreat like version of its parent yogi festival, Bhakti Fest.

The heart of Shakti Fest, like its name depicts, is centered around the divine feminine.  One of the key transformational experiences that came out of the event was divine union with one our Living Fae archetypes Lakshmi. Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity,  fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. She represents these energies in both their spiritual and material forms.

As light workers we are attracted to numerous deities and have built altars, invoked and performed rituals to honor each of them. Lakshmi has most certainly always been around and within us, but presently she is shining through to us ever more prominently. She of course comes to us in perfect timing as we channel even more light and love into Living Fae.

Lakshmi is the embodiment of the superior divine feminine energy.  She purifies, empowers and uplifts you. She is also the personification of Kundalini which is the Spiritual energy within us and the universe. Her arms signify Purity, Prosperity, Perfection and Freedom. The gold coins continuously flowing out of her left hand represent endless material prosperity. Her right hand symbolizes blessing and assurance of safety to her devotees.

If you want to bring more Lakshmi into your life create an altar for her and make it one of the most beautiful altars you have ever created. Surround it with flowers and all things you find of beauty. Then set your intension for all the abundance you wish to create. After you’ve designed the altar spend time chanting her mantra in front of it. It’s good to chant it 108 times daily, which only takes about 8 minutes of your time. It is said that if you chant a deity’s mantra in front of it it is infused with the divinely channeled energy of the mantra.

Mantra for Lakshmi

Om Shreem Mahalakshmiyei Namaha

Translation: Om and salutations to She who provides abundance.

You can chat the mantra with Deva Premal here.

May Lakshmi fill your life with beauty and abundance beyond measures.

Mother Goddess Blessings For You

Blessings of light and love to all this Mother Goddess Day!

lotus flower

Bestow love, honor, affection and respect for your Mother, all the Mother figures in your life, the Mother Goddess and the nurturing Mother archetype within you.

The Mother archetype’s function is to be aware of what you need to keep your life harmonious and in balance. Tune into your Mother archetype and listen. The more you can tap into that energy, the more loving and caring you will be to yourself. The more vibrant you become.

Take responsibility for yourself and look after your needs.  When you nurture your own self you understand what’s needed in your life in order to feel safe, secure and supported.  Take some time and reflect on how you can be the best Mother to yourself. What do you really need most to feel healthy, happy? The healthier your Mother archetype is the more you are able to create a healthy, happy life for yourself and others.

Affirmations:

  • I take care, honor and respect my needs.
  • I AM responsible for myself.
  • I AM supported and guided with love and tenderness.
  • I trust and release all doubts that block abundance and prosperity in my life.
  • I AM safe and I protect my inner child.
  • I AM a great Mother!

Meditation:

  • Light some myrrh or palo santo. If you don’t have either of those scents use something earthy. If you have some mala beads have those with you.
  • Sit in lotus or half lotus with your back straight.
  • Take a deep breath and feel the base of your spine sink into and connect with the earth beneath you. Feel roots growing down from you into the earth.
  • Feel yourself connect with the earth, feel its love and support.
  • Chant Om, 3 times.
  • Now visualize a bright red glowing orb spinning at the base of your spin. See it get brighter and brighter.
  • Feel the warmth of its glow.
  • Chant: Om shanti Om (108 times – use the mala beads to help you count or chant along with Deva Premal)
  • End your meditation with: Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om
  • Bask in the glow for a few minutes before you open your eyes and go about your day.
