Today is the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere. The celestial event that marks this transition is called an “equinox,” and happens twice every year, around March 21 and September 21. An equinox occurs when day and night are of equal length, which happens when the Earth’s pole tilts neither away from, nor towards the Sun. It’s the time when our planet is perfectly balanced.
Can you feel it?
If not, breathe deeply, then pause for a moment to take advantage of this celestial event and to reflect on whether or not your life is in balance by asking yourself two simple questions that may send you spinning in a new and celestially inspired direction:
- Is your life rotating around what really matters to you?
- Is your life tilting toward or away from your dreams?
If your life is in balance and is circling your priorities, savor and celebrate it!
If your life isn’t going in the direction you’d like, take a moment to congratulate yourself for being honest about your situation – a huge first step. Next, share encouraging words with yourself that reinforce the fact that change is possible – “I can do this!” “I’ve made changes before, and I can do it again.” And then, remind yourself that change, just like the seasons, takes time but is perfectly natural.
You can do it! I know you can. Start planning your changes today, so six months from now when the Earth’s axis is tilting toward the sun, your life is tilted toward your dreams!
