Today I want to share with you from a Magical place and share one of my favorite Seasons of the year. Today is Autumn Equinox or what I call Mabon. It is the celebration of the last harvest and the beginning of seeing more darkness. The Autumn time and more darkness gives us the blessing of going inward to be with our being and embrace what we love about our life and release that which doesn’t serve us. I invite you to do a simple ritual to release a few cobwebs that have formed and are hanging on. During mid October I will go deeper with you into the darkness and do shadow work. It is a practice I connect with deeply. But for now…
Here are the simple ways to hone in on this time and yes, it is truly MAGICAL when you do rituals for yourself. I invite you to light a white candle, get out a journal and start this beautiful process I am sharing with you.
What has happened so far in this year that has impacted your life? What was good, what was not so good? What changes took place? What did you give birth to? How are you in relationship to yourself and others? (This is such an important one) What has stopped you from feeling juiciness and passionate bliss? Make sure you write these down on paper.
After you have spent time reflecting you should see areas in your life that did not serve you or not needed. These are release moments. This is the time to start the Autumn season anew and nothing feels better than letting go of the muck we hold onto. For releasing gather a basket of leaves that have shed and you can write on with a marker. Pick out leaves from your basket and write words or simple sentences of release. On one of my leaves I wrote, not enough time to spend with family and friends. I want to release that mindset and take action to put that time in my weekly calendar. When you are finished and have your marked leaves you can do several things with them. I love to sprinkle them down my creek and watch them float away. You can also toss them into air and let the wind carry them. You can also burn them in a safe container, fire is powerful for transformation. Lastly you can bury them into the ground and let Mother Nature receive them.
As you reflect back and currently in your life it is amazing how many blessings you are given. I am always so grateful when I see on paper all the goodness in my life. This is also a time to look at what you are currently desiring and wanting to receive as we go into the Magical time of Autumn. Receiving is an area in my life that I am learning to cultivate more. How open am I to receiving and do I do so without reservation or unworthiness. Receiving with an open heart is one of the most precious and radiant gifts you can give to yourself and to others.
TIME TO PLAY
This time of the year is extremely magical, beautiful and it calls us to come forth and play before the deepness of cold hits. I love watching the leaves blow around; I love the change in colors, long drives in the mountain with my ragtop down where I live, visiting all the farms close by and getting apples and other goodies to make cider and warm homey meals. I love romping through the woods with my three furry big boys bouncing around me. Dewey my biggest boy loves to catch the leaves in his mouth as they fall and spin.
The Magic In The Moment

The wind began to blow
And shook the trees
Heads turned up in unison
Witnessing a season of change
The leaves were freed from their branches
Floating and swinging through the air
Painting the sky with golden colors
Dancing their way to the ground
The wind blew again
And the trees shook
Whispers in the wind:
“It’s good luck to catch a leaf!”
Searching and turning
Arms opening wide
Hands held high
Watching the leaves dance in the sky
They swirled, turned and swept me
Off my feet
Dodging and scooping
The magic in the moment
Now I ask you…What do you crave for this time of the year? What brings you magical giggles and what do you want to do for you during this celebration? What are you waiting for, go… have fun and nothing less than colorful bliss.
I am so grateful to serve you this year and any time that I can. Thank you for opening up your heart, mind and spirit to my messages of magic and bliss. Sending you so much love from my heart to yours this Autumn Season,
