The changing season is a time of transformation: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Those in the northern hemisphere enter a time of sleep/death, and those in the southern hemisphere enter a time of birth/renewal.
Here is a fall/spring ritual that anyone can do anywhere:
- Take some time to look at your life and think about what you want to let go of and what you want to have in your life.
- Create two floatable bundles that represent the following:
- The first one: What you want to release.
- The second one: What you want to receive.
- Take the bundles to a flowing waterway.
- Tell the water what it is that you want to release.
- Toss the first bundle in the water, so it flows away from you.
- Tell the water what it is that you want to receive.
- Toss the second bundle in the water so that it flows towards you.
- Once the bundles have sailed away, walk away and do not look back.
- Feel free to do this with your children and friends.
My gift to you all,
