Autumn – balancing night and day

12/02/2014 - 10:06

Autumn is often overcast, wet and grey so bring warmth and colour into your home to help the transition from glorious late summer to the fantastic winter snow that is to come. (I love the snow says the Australian!) Take time to celebrate the harvest and make an event of this grey period by making small preparations for the winter. The autumn equinox is the day when day light hours and night time hours are in balance, this is a great time to reflect on our own inner dark side and accept it as much as we accept our light side.

Key word

Is there something you have been meaning to read up on for a while? Now is the time!


Meditation 1 – balance, reflect on the light and dark sides of life, accept that your dark side is as much a part of you as your light side and seek the balance between the two. Mediation 2 – as the leaves fall reflect on the natural cycle of life and this time of letting go and releasing something that has been a burden to you.
