At Winter Solstice we participated in a giving ceremony. We were to bring an item to give away to someone to set our intention for the coming lunation. The object did not have to be related to the intention, but instead be something of significant attachment so that it was not easy to let go of it. Since our big purge, it was easy to fulfill this requirement since there is very little in my life that doesn’t have personal significance now! The idea was to set something in motion. To actualize a deep desire for change – change that I wanted so much that I was willing to give something away that was important to me.
Now that it is Spring Equinox, I can reflect on this past quarter with admiration for how far I have come. My intention at Solstice was to release my fear of making mistakes. I wanted it so much that this quarter we took it one step further listed our house before we had somewhere of our own to move to. I want to live with integrity so much that I’m willing to part with the memories attached to this ‘thing’ which has come to represent my home. Home is actually found inside myself and within the embrace of my loved ones.
So I set out into this Spring with determination to find the way along our new path, overgrown as it may be, it has been there all along. I brave myself for the journey, reminding myself to be unafraid of taking a wrong turn. For no turn is wrong when any effort to forge this path will only lead to new and previously unimagined possibilities. The seed of change which was planted in late summer is bursting with new energy, ready to break the surface of the soil!
Blessings for balance this Spring Equinox!
